Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to employ any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites which require the tool will perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. No matter which cloud package you acquire, you can take advantage of the instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that requires it will operate perfectly in your account. By using a handy instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on all the servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, so you can use it for all your script-driven apps with any of our semi-dedicated server plans. It will be available at all times even if you change the PHP release for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel which is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you may also use a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single site that you host from your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a few lines of program code inside it. In case you do not have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 tech assistance will assist.
