Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal 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 as it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the instrument tend to perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do this. Because we support many different versions 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 have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you won't need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, but in case you're unsure what to do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll enable the tool for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans. It's available on our avant-garde cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application which you want to use requires it to work, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release which your website hosting account uses. For each new release which you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you'll be all set. Hepsia will remember your selection for previously used versions of PHP, therefore you will not need to do that every time. If you have more experience, you can take full advantage of the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular site without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
