A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected program code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run properly on a web server after that is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you wish to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which require the tool tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
All the website hosting accounts which we provide are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of the clusters. For that reason, you are able to install and execute script-driven apps which require Zend regardless of the package that you pick upon signup. The user-friendly Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the control over your web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception because it will take only a single click to do this. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and use Zend only for a specific domain. Since you can switch between a number of PHP releases, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps in the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Once you log in to your 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 all of them. Zend is among these options, so you don't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version which you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP version 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 site, but not for the website hosting account in general.
