A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to work with any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites which require the instrument generally perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All the cloud hosting accounts that we provide are generated on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of the clusters. Consequently, you are able to install and execute script-driven apps which require Zend regardless of the plan that you choose upon signup. The easy to work with 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 is not an exception due to the fact that it will take just a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend only for a specific domain name. As you can switch between many different PHP releases, you'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and manage both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting service. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you would like to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP release which 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 will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not need to do that every time. In the event that you have more experience, you can benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
