Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to employ any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud web hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Given that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you won't need any coding skills or previous experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but when you're not sure what to do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all the servers which are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to activate and take advantage of Zend for any script app which you need to use with no more than a single click. You may also pick the PHP version which will be active for your account, so if you move to some other release, you only have to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as easy as that. If 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 separate website by putting a php.ini file with the required code inside the corresponding domain folder.
