Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is commonly used since it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you want to employ any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites that require the tool tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting
All the web hosting accounts that we provide are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of the clusters. Consequently, you are able to install and run script-driven applications that require Zend regardless of the plan that you select upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the control over your world wide web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it will take a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend only for a specific domain. Because you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and run both new and older apps within the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as 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 site, but not for the web hosting account in general.
