Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you would like to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which need the tool tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. No matter which cloud website hosting plan you pick, you will be able to take advantage of the instrument so that any kind of script application that needs it will work properly as part of your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to work with a couple of PHP releases at once, more advanced users can enable the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, so you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
