Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly 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 run properly on a web server afterwards is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you want to work with any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

All of the shared hosting accounts that we provide are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. Because of this, you'll be able to install and run script-driven applications which need Zend regardless of the plan that you select upon registration. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts shall make the management of your web presence a piece of cake and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it will take a single click to do this. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend only for a specific domain name. As you can switch between numerous PHP versions, you can enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in the very same way and run both new and older apps within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to activate Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you need to head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have 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'll have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the option 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 only for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
