Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run properly on a web server after that is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you would like to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux hosting you acquire, you'll be able to activate the instrument so that any kind of script application that requires it will function perfectly in your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different options with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any problems. In the same area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it will take you just a few clicks to do this. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should visit the PHP Configuration section where you'll find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, so you will not need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility 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 only for this particular website, but not for the hosting account in general.
