Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used since it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server after that is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to employ any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, websites that need the instrument usually perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud package
you acquire, you can activate the tool to ensure that any script app which requires it will work perfectly within your account. Using a handy software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various options with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you won't experience any troubles. In the very same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and whenever you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can enable the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We have set up Zend Optimizer on all of the servers which are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on it, you will be able to activate and use Zend for any script app which you'd like to use with just a click. You may also select the PHP version which will be active for your account, so if you switch to another version, you just have 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 easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer just for a separate site by putting a php.ini file with the needed code inside the corresponding domain folder.
