Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that require the instrument tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the website hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do that. Given that we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click tool, therefore you won't need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, yet in case you're unsure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on all servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, which means that you can use it for your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server plans. It is available at all times even when you switch the PHP release for your account because our feature-rich platform allows you to choose from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel which is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you may even employ a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single website that you host from your account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of lines of program code inside it. If you don't have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical support can assist you.
