Lots of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you wish to work with any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which require the instrument can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the cloud web hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all accounts and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Considering that we support several different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used yet.

Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, still when you're unsure what you should do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the instrument for you.

In addition, you can select the PHP release that will be active for your account, therefore if you switch to a new release, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that.

More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer only for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
