Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work properly on a web server afterwards is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you want to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites that need the tool can perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which website hosting plan you choose, you can activate the tool to guarantee that any script app that requires it will work properly within your account. Using a handy software instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore any time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to use multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the hosting account in general.
