A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run properly on a web server after that is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you wish to work with any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the tool tend to perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

When you get a hosting service from our company, you can choose the PHP release, which will be active for your account according to what your script applications require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you are able to use a small software tool that will allow you to manage the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you won't need any previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the required code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you are able to contact our tech support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting. It's installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you would like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't have to do that every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
