Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have protected code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used since it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server after that is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you want to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites that require the tool generally perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud hosting you obtain, you will be able to take advantage of the tool so that any script application which requires it will operate properly in your account. By using a convenient tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't have any troubles. In the same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to work with several PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, 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 only for this particular website, but not for the hosting account in general.
