A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is commonly used as it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server subsequently is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites which require the tool will perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our custom cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the cloud website hosting package that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Because we support a number of different releases of 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), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but if you're unsure what to do, you're able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they can enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a few clicks to do that. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you do not need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect only for this specific website, but not for the web hosting account as a whole.
