Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is popular due to the fact that it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you wish to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites which need the tool can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. No matter which shared website hosting plan you choose, you can activate the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script app that needs it will function perfectly in your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you won't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account in general.
