Lots of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular since it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to employ any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which require the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our custom cloud platform and you can use it whatever the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support several different versions 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 so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, and you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet in case you are not sure what you should do, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers that comprise our cluster hosting platform, which means that you're able to use it for all of your script-driven apps with all of our semi-dedicated server plans. It is available at all times even if you switch the PHP version for your account because our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a couple of clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to manage the semi-dedicated accounts. In addition, you may also use a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for every single domain that you host in your account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code inside it. If you do not have previous experience and you are not sure how to do that, our 24/7 technical assistance can assist you.
