Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program 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 tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that 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 correctly on a web server afterwards is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting accounts which we offer are generated on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers that are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you're able to set up and execute script-driven apps that require Zend whatever the package that you pick upon registration. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with the accounts will make the control over your online presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it'll take a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a given domain folder and enable Zend only for a specific domain. Because you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you can activate Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and run both new and older apps from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We have installed Zend Optimizer on all servers which are part of our top-notch cloud hosting platform and since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you can enable and take advantage of Zend for any script app which you need to use with no more than a single click. You can also pick the PHP version that will be active for your account, so if you move to another release, you just have to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. If you change the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP version and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a separate site by placing a php.ini file with the required code in the corresponding domain folder.
