Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular as it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared website hosting package you get, you can activate the software instrument to ensure that any kind of script application which needs it will operate perfectly in your account. By using a convenient instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to take advantage of multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It is available on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you would like to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't have to do that every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
