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 stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you would like to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, sites which need the tool can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

When you buy a shared hosting package from us, you're able to pick the PHP version, which will be active for the account depending on what your script apps require. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this area, you will be able to use a compact software tool which will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any kind of previous experience considering that activating Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the necessary code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you will not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
