Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run properly on a web server afterwards is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the tool generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

All of the shared website hosting accounts that we provide are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers which are a part of the clusters. Consequently, you are able to install and run script-driven applications that require Zend regardless of the plan that you choose upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception due to the fact that it will take a single click to do this. Furthermore, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend just for a particular domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps in the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes just a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you don't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release and 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 specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
