Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you would like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites that require the instrument usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the web hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Given that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet if you are unsure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support team and they will activate the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It's installed on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven application which you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You'll find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, which means that you will not have to do this each and every time. In the event that you have more experience, you're able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular website without the need of altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
