Many licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is widely used since it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server after that is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you wish to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites which require the tool will perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
All the cloud hosting accounts which we provide are generated on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. Consequently, you're able to set up and run script-driven applications that require Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon signup. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the accounts shall make the control over your web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it'll take just a single click to do this. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a given domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a specific domain name. Since you can switch between numerous PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and manage both new and older applications from the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a couple of clicks to do that. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you won't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Because you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
