Many licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used because it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that need the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

All the website hosting accounts which we provide are created on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers which are a part of the clusters. For that reason, you are able to set up and execute script-driven apps which need Zend irrespective of the plan that you pick upon registration. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that is featured with the accounts shall make the control over your web presence very simple and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception since it'll take only a single click to do it. Of course, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and activate Zend only for a specific domain name. Since you can switch between numerous PHP versions, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very 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 every single 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 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 don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we've also left the option for more experienced users to set both 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 website, but not for the website hosting account in general.
