Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular as it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, sites which need the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. No matter which cloud website hosting you pick, you will be able to use the software tool so that any kind of script application which needs it will work perfectly within your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any problems. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever 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 use several PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated servers. It's available on our revolutionary cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you want to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release that your website hosting account uses. For any new release that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
