Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server after that is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you would like to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites which need the instrument usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you choose, you can take advantage of the tool to guarantee that any script app that requires it will function flawlessly in your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various options with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We have installed Zend Optimizer on all of the servers that are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform and due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you'll be able to enable and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script app that you want to use with just a single click. You may also choose the PHP release that will be active for your account, so if you switch to a new release, you only need to go to the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as simple as that. In case you change 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 single site by placing a php.ini file with the required program code in the corresponding domain folder.
