Lots of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites which need the tool will perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the website hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, therefore you won't need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet in case you are not sure how to proceed, you can get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
