Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widespread because it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you wish to work with any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the tool can perform better due to the fact that 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 a part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. No matter which cloud hosting you obtain, you can take advantage of the instrument so that any script application that needs it will operate perfectly within your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any difficulties. In the very same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have set up Zend Optimizer on all of the servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can activate and employ Zend for any script app which you want to use with just a single click. In addition, you can select the PHP release that will be active for your account, thus if you move to some other version, you just have to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the required program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
