A lot of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used because it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to use any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared website hosting package
you get, you'll be able to activate the software instrument to guarantee that any kind of script application which requires it will work flawlessly as part of your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable 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 provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages
. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you can benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
