Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you wish to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the tool tend to perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

All web hosting accounts which we offer are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. For that reason, you'll be able to set up and execute script-driven apps that need Zend regardless of the package that you select upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the accounts will make the management of your world wide web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it'll take just a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend just for a particular domain name. Since you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, so you won't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Because you can also change the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
