Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is commonly used since it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you'd like to employ any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which require the instrument usually perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

All the shared website hosting accounts which we provide are generated on our cutting-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers which are part of the clusters. As a result, you can install and execute script-driven apps that require Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel which is featured with the accounts shall make the management of your web presence very simple and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it will take only a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a specific domain. As you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and manage both new and older apps from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you can find many different options and On/Off buttons for each of them. Zend is among these options, so you won't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Of course, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular site, but not for the web hosting account in general.
