A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular due to the fact that it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you'd like to employ any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites that need the instrument generally perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

All cloud web hosting accounts that we provide are set up on our advanced cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers that are part of the clusters. For that reason, you are able to install and run script-driven applications which require Zend whatever the plan that you select upon registration. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts will make the control over your web presence a breeze and enabling Zend Optimizer is not an exception as it'll take only a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and take advantage of Zend just for a specific domain. Because you can switch between a number of different PHP versions, you'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer for all of them in exactly the same way and manage both new and older apps from the same account.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages. It's installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you'd like to use requires it to work, you just have to enable it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also switch the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For each and every 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 releases of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you are able to take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file to set another PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular domain without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
