Lots of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widely used as it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you would like to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that require the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

All of the cloud hosting accounts which we offer are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers which are a part of the clusters. Because of this, you're able to install and run script-driven apps which require Zend irrespective of the plan that you pick upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts shall make the control over your world wide web presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it will take a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and activate Zend just for a particular domain name. Because you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you can activate Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You can activate Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a few clicks to do this. After you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP version for your account from the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility 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 particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
