Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widespread because it can be used to change any type 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 another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which require the instrument tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

All the shared hosting accounts that we offer are set up on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all of the servers that are a part of the clusters. As a result, you can install and execute script-driven apps which require Zend regardless of the plan that you choose upon registration. The intuitive Hepsia Control Panel which is included with the accounts will make the management of your web presence very easy and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it will take a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a specific domain folder and take advantage of Zend just for a specific domain. Since you can switch between a variety of PHP releases, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for any of them in the very same way and run both new and older apps within the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Once you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should head to the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for all of them. Zend is one of these options, so you won't have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also switch the PHP release for your account from the very same section, you'll need to enable Zend for any new version that you use. Furthermore, we have also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set both the PHP release 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 specific website, but not for the website hosting account in general.
