Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you wish to use any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites that require the instrument can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux hosting you pick, you will be able to activate the tool so that any script app which needs it will operate flawlessly in your account. By using a convenient tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different settings with 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 problems. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

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. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is among these options, which means that you won't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release and 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 particular site, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
