Lots of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server after that is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to work with any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that need the instrument tend to perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared package you choose, you will be able to activate the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script application which needs it will function properly in your account. By using a convenient software tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It's installed on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release that your hosting account uses. For each and every new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you won't have to do that every time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
