A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is commonly used because it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to work with any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument generally perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

All the web hosting accounts that we offer are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of the clusters. For that reason, you're able to install and execute script-driven applications that require Zend regardless of the package that you select upon registration. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts will make the management of your web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it will take a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend just for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between numerous PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older applications from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated service. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you wish to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For every new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, so you will not need to do this each and every time. In case you have more experience, you can take full advantage of 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 particular domain name without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
