Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used since it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work properly on a web server after that is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to use any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites that need the tool tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Considering that we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, so you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet in case you're unsure what to do, you can get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We've installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script app which you wish to use with just a click. You can also pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, thus if you move to another version, you only have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as simple as that. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer only for a separate website by putting a php.ini file with the required code in the corresponding domain folder.
