Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular since it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run the right way on a web server after that is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
If you buy a Linux cloud hosting through us, you're able to choose the PHP version, which will be active for your account based on what your script apps need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you can use a compact tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, so you won't need any previous knowledge because activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the required program code in a particular domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our technical support team anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you will not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account in general.
