Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work effectively on a web server after that is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you wish to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, sites which need the instrument tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which web hosting plan you get, you can use the tool to guarantee that any kind of script app that requires it will operate perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different options with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first hosting account ever, you won't experience any problems. In the very same area you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and each time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of several PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, so you don't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
