A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server afterwards is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to employ any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, sites that require the tool tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-built cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all accounts and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Considering that we support numerous 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'll need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, so you do not need any programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but when you're not sure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting. It is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, so if any script-driven app which you wish to use requires it to function, you just need to enable it with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration section where you can also change the PHP version that your website hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you won't have to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you can take advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular site without the need of altering the overall settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
