Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you would like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, sites which need the tool usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the cloud hosting package that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do this. Given that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click application, so you won't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet in case you're not sure how to proceed, you can contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We've installed Zend Optimizer on all servers which are part of our hi-tech cloud hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to enable and employ Zend for any kind of script app that you would like to use with just a single click. You can also choose the PHP release that will be active for your account, thus if you switch to a different version, you only need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as simple as that. In case you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More tech-savvy users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the required program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
