Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server after that is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to use any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites which need the tool usually perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Since we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, and you don't need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still if you're unsure what to do, you can contact our 24/7 technical support team and they'll activate the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our innovative cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you would like to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For any new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific site without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
