Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you want to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites which require the tool can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the shared website hosting package that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do that. Given that we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, so you do not need any kind of coding skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, yet when you are unsure what to do, 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

We have installed Zend Optimizer on all servers which are part of our top-notch cloud website hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any script application that you want to use with no more than a click. In addition, you can select the PHP release which will be active for your account, thus if you switch to another release, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. In case you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a separate site by placing a php.ini file with the required code inside the corresponding domain folder.
