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 not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to employ any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites which require the tool generally perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which shared hosting plan you obtain, you can activate the instrument to guarantee that any script application which needs it will operate perfectly within your account. By using a convenient software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to employ several PHP versions at once, more advanced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes just a few clicks to do this. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you do not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
