A lot of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server afterwards is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites which need the tool can perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux hosting package you choose, you'll be able to use the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script application that needs it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is among these options, so you won't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release 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 just for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
