A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread because it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you would like to use any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites that require the instrument usually perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the cloud web hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. Due to the fact that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you do not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, still in case you're not sure what you should do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It's installed on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you wish 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 can also change the PHP version which your hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not need to do this each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
