Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to modify any 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 subsequently is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to work with any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which need the tool generally perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are part of our modern cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux hosting you choose, you will be able to activate the tool to ensure that any script application that requires it will function flawlessly in your account. By using a convenient software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different options with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any troubles. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, thus whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated hosting. It is installed on our avant-garde cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You will find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you may also switch the PHP version which your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do that each time. In case you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set a different PHP release and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
