Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is commonly used as it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that need the instrument generally perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which website hosting you pick, you can take advantage of the software instrument to guarantee that any kind of script app which needs it will operate flawlessly within your account. By using a convenient tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that each time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. It is installed on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you'd like to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do this each and every time. In case you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
