Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you would like to use any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the instrument will perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom-built cloud platform and you're able to use it whatever the hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Because we support many different releases 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'll have to activate Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, therefore you won't need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer with no troubles, still in case you're not sure how to proceed, you're able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they can enable the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do this. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you won't need to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you'll have to enable Zend for any new version that you use. In addition, we have also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing 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.
