Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you would like to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, sites that require the instrument will perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux hosting package you acquire, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to ensure that any script app which requires it will function properly in your account. Using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so 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 allows you to employ a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven app which you would like to use requires it to function, you just need to activate it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP version that your hosting account uses. For each new release which 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, therefore you won't need to do that each time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without the need of altering the overall settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
