A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used since it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work properly on a web server afterwards is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you wish to work with any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which require the instrument tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

When you get a Linux cloud web hosting package from our company, you are able to choose the PHP release, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You will be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you'll be able to take advantage of a compact tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you won't need any previous experience as activating Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the required program code in a particular domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you're able to contact our tech support team anytime.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set both 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 site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
