A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular since it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that require the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud hosting you acquire, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to guarantee that any script application which needs it will function properly within your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you do not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the hosting account in general.
