Lots of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which require the instrument tend to perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated servers. It's present on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you wish to use requires it to work, you just need to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you will not have to do that each time. If you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific site without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
