Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites that require the tool tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

When you purchase a website hosting plan through our company, you will be able to select the PHP release, which will be active for your account based on what your script applications need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you can take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you will not need any kind of previous experience because activating Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you'll be able to contact our tech support team at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you wish to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not need to do this each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
