Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you wish to work with any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that need the instrument can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
When you get a Linux shared service through our company, you're able to pick the PHP version, that will be active for your account according to what your script applications require. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you will be able to use a compact tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions through On and Off buttons, therefore you won't need any previous experience because activating Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users can do the same thing by adding a php.ini file with the required program code in a specific domain folder. If you need any assistance to activate the tool, you are able to contact our technical support team anytime.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You can activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes just a couple of clicks to do that. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both 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 just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account in general.
