Lots of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to change any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server after that is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites that need the instrument will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting accounts which we offer are set up on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of the clusters. As a result, you'll be able to set up and execute script-driven apps which require Zend whatever the package that you pick upon registration. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel which is featured with the accounts will make the management of your web presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it will take only a single click to do this. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend only for a particular domain. Since you can switch between a number of different PHP releases, you can activate Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and run both new and older apps within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
