Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used as it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you wish to employ any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which need the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud package through our company, you are able to select the PHP version, that will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you will be able to take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous experience considering that activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the required code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any assistance to activate the tool, you'll be able to contact our technical support crew anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you won't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
