Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you wish to use any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, sites which need the instrument usually perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
All hosting accounts that we provide are created on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. As a result, you'll be able to install and run script-driven applications which require Zend regardless of the package that you select upon signup. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with the accounts will make the control over your online presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it'll take a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also put a php.ini file in a given domain folder and activate Zend just for a specific domain. Since you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older apps within the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Once you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to head to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, therefore you will not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as 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 site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
