Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread as it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you would like to work with any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the tool tend to perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. No matter which web hosting you get, you can use the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script application which requires it will work properly within your account. Using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any problems. In the same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and whenever you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, so you don't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, 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 putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
