Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widespread as it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work correctly on a web server after that is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you would like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites that require the instrument tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are a part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud hosting package you obtain, you will be able to activate the tool to ensure that any kind of script application which requires it will work flawlessly within your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the web hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any troubles. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform allows you to use multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that comprise our cluster web hosting platform, so you'll be able to use it for your script-driven applications with any of our semi-dedicated server packages. It will be available at all times even if you change the PHP version for your account as our feature-rich platform allows you to choose between PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2. Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you can also employ a different version of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for each individual website that you host from your account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code in it. If you don't have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 support will assist.
