Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which need the tool generally perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared hosting service you get, you will be able to use the software tool to guarantee that any kind of script app which needs it will operate properly as part of your account. By using a convenient software tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, so each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to take advantage of multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific site 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 semi-dedicated service. It's installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you need to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For any new release which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
