Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widespread as it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run effectively on a web server after that is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you wish to work with any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites that need the instrument tend to perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud web hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, and you don't need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but if you are not sure how to proceed, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, therefore you are able to use it for your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. It is available all the time even if you change the PHP version for your account as our feature-rich platform will allow you to choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel which is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you may even employ a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual site that you host in your account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code inside it. In case you don't have previous experience and you are not sure how to do this, our 24/7 support can help you.
