Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you wish to employ any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that require the instrument tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which shared service you get, you will be able to use the software tool so that any kind of script app which requires it will function properly within your account. Using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you will not encounter any difficulties. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a few clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you do not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
