Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you want to use any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the instrument generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which shared website hosting plan you obtain, you will be able to take advantage of the software instrument to ensure that any script app that needs it will work properly as part of your account. By using a convenient software instrument from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the web hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of options with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not encounter any issues. In the exact same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
Zend Optimizer is featured on all the servers that comprise our cluster website hosting platform, therefore you will be able to use it for all of your script-driven applications with all of our semi-dedicated server packages. It will be available all the time even if you change the PHP release for your account because our feature-rich platform allows you to select from 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. Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. Furthermore, you can even use a different release of PHP and activate or deactivate Zend for each individual site that you host in the account. This is possible by using a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of program code in it. In case you don't have previous experience and you aren't sure how to do that, our 24/7 support can help you.
