Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you'd like to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites that need the tool generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which shared web hosting service you pick, you'll be able to activate the instrument so that any kind of script application which needs it will work perfectly within your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the very same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus any time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can enable the tool for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you do not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have 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 particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
