A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server after that is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you'd like to work with any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which require the instrument usually perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. No matter which shared hosting plan you acquire, you'll be able to take advantage of the instrument to guarantee that any kind of script app that needs it will work perfectly in your account. By using a handy software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate various settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have any problems. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, which means that any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to use multiple PHP releases at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a particular 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 our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans. It's installed on our innovative cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version that your web hosting account uses. For every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used releases of PHP, so you won't need to do that each and every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
