Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that need the instrument can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

When you buy a shared hosting from us, you can pick the PHP release, which will be active for your account depending on what your script apps need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you will be able to use a small software tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any kind of previous knowledge since enabling Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users will be able to do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the required code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our technical support crew at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers.
