Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to employ any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which require the tool can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Web Hosting
All of the shared web hosting accounts which we offer are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers that are part of the clusters. As a result, you'll be able to set up and execute script-driven apps that need Zend whatever the package that you pick upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the control over your web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception because it will take a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend just for a specific domain. Since you can switch between a variety of PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications in the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services. It is installed on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app which you wish to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For each new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do this each and every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
