Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used as it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you want to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument tend to perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud web hosting you select, you can activate the tool to ensure that any kind of script app which requires it will work perfectly in your account. By using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any problems. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to use several PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can enable the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
