Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites that require the tool usually perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Since you can switch between a variety of PHP releases, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications from the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It is present on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For every new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you will not need to do that every time. If you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a specific website without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
