A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to use any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that need the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do that. Because we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you will not need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, yet when you are unsure how to proceed, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Zend Optimizer is featured on all the servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, therefore you're able to use it for all of your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server plans. It will be available all of the time even if you change the PHP release for your account since our feature-rich platform will allow you to select from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you may even use a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual website that you host in your account. You can do this by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of lines of program code in it. If you don't have previous experience and you are unsure how to do that, our 24/7 tech support can help you.
