Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used since it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to work with any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the tool tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which shared hosting plan you obtain, you'll be able to use the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script application that needs it will function perfectly in your account. Using a handy tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different options with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our semi-dedicated hosting plans. It's present on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you would like to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also switch the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For each and every new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you won't need to do that every time. If you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
