Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular as it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to use any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, websites which require the tool tend to perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software tool, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you are not sure how to proceed, you can contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is present on our revolutionary cloud platform, so if any script-driven app that you'd like to use requires it to function, you just have to enable it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do this every time. If you have more experience, you are able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
