Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's commonly used since it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to use any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud web hosting you select, you'll be able to take advantage of the software instrument so that any kind of script app which needs it will function flawlessly as part of your account. By using a handy tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of functions with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties. In the same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to work with several PHP versions at once, 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'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set 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 website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
