Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely since it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server subsequently is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you want to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites which need the tool tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which shared website hosting plan you obtain, you'll be able to use the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script application which needs it will function perfectly in your account. By using a handy tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any difficulties. In the same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are a part of our hi-tech cloud website hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any script app that you wish to use with just a single click.

If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a single site by putting a php.ini file with the needed program code in the corresponding domain folder.
