Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work properly on a web server subsequently is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you wish to employ any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites which require the tool generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All cloud hosting accounts which we provide are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you're able to set up and execute script-driven applications which require Zend whatever the plan that you select upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception due to the fact that it will take a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend only for a particular domain. Since you can switch between numerous 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 Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it takes just a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you won't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
