Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widely used because it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work effectively on a web server after that is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites which need the tool tend to perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux web hosting you choose, you can use the instrument to ensure that any script application that needs it will operate perfectly as part of 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 will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP versions at once, more advanced users can activate the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application which you would like to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP release which your 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 will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific site without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
