Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely 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 encrypted files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to use any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites that need the instrument will perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

All the cloud web hosting accounts that we provide are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers which are a part of the clusters. Consequently, you're able to install and execute script-driven applications that need Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon registration. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with the accounts will make the management of your web presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it will take only a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and take advantage of Zend just for a particular domain. As you can switch between numerous PHP releases, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older applications within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we provide and it takes just a couple of clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various 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 complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
