Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used because it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you would like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites that require the tool will perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

All the shared hosting accounts which we offer are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you're able to set up and execute script-driven applications which need Zend whatever the package that you pick upon signup. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the management of your web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it'll take just a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and use Zend only for a specific domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you would like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, simply 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, therefore you will not need to do that every time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
