Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected 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. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you want to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, sites that need the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you select, you'll be able to activate the instrument to ensure that any script application which needs it will work perfectly as part of your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any troubles. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to use several PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated servers. It is available on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you wish to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you won't need to do this each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
