Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular as it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you would like to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, sites which need the instrument can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
All cloud website hosting accounts which we provide are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of the clusters. As a result, you're able to set up and run script-driven apps that need Zend irrespective of the plan that you select upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the management of your web presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it'll take a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and activate Zend just for a particular domain. Since you can switch between a variety of PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and manage both new and older applications within the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you will not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting 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.
