Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular because it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to run properly on a web server after that is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you want to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites that require the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
All of the shared website hosting accounts which we provide are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you can install and run script-driven apps which require Zend regardless of the plan that you select upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the accounts will make the management of your web presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it'll take only a single click to do this. Furthermore, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and use Zend just for a specific domain name. As you can switch between many different PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps in the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you will not need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting 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 as a whole.
