Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run properly on a web server after that is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you would like to employ any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which need the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud website hosting package you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to guarantee that any script application which requires it will work perfectly in your account. By using a convenient instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have any problems. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It's present on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For any 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 releases of PHP, so you won't have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
