Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is widespread because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run correctly on a web server after that is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you would like to work with any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites that need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click application, therefore you will not need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, yet when you're unsure what you should do, you can contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you won't have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
