Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widely used as it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you'd like to use any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites which need the tool usually perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud web hosting you select, you can activate the instrument so that any kind of script app that needs it will work flawlessly within your account. By using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the web hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform enables you to employ multiple PHP releases at the same time, more advanced users can enable the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do that. After you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you won't need to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific site, but not for the web hosting account in general.
