Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to employ any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites which require the tool generally perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
All of the shared hosting accounts which we provide are generated on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. Consequently, you'll be able to set up and run script-driven applications which require Zend irrespective of the package that you choose upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with the accounts will make the management of your online presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it'll take a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a particular domain. Because you can switch between a variety of PHP versions, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and run both new and older apps from the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
