Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's used widely since it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run properly on a web server subsequently is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you would like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which require the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all accounts and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Since we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, and you do not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but when you are unsure what you should do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they can activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes only a few clicks to do this. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of 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 release for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
