Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is commonly used because it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to work the right way on a web server after that is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites that require the instrument tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are a part of our leading-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which web hosting plan you choose, you'll be able to use the instrument to ensure that any kind of script app which needs it will function properly as part of your account. Using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that any time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform enables you to work with several PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool 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 plans. It is available on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you'd like to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For each and every new release that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't have to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you are able to take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific domain name without altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
