Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run properly on a web server subsequently is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you want to work with any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that need the tool can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared hosting you choose, you can take advantage of the software instrument to guarantee that any kind of script application that needs it will work flawlessly in your account. By using a handy instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various settings with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not have any troubles. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the instrument for an individual website 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 semi-dedicated hosting. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you would like to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also change the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't need to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
