Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widely used due to the fact that it can be used to change any 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 when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites that need the instrument will perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
All the shared website hosting accounts that we provide are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is present on all the servers that are part of the clusters. As a result, you're able to install and execute script-driven applications which require Zend regardless of the package that you select upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel that comes with the accounts will make the management of your web presence a piece of cake and enabling Zend Optimizer makes no exception due to the fact that it will take just a single click to do it. In addition, more experienced users can also insert a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and enable Zend only for a particular domain. As you can switch between a number of different PHP releases, you can enable Zend Optimizer for them in the very same way and run both new and older apps from the same account.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we provide and it'll take you only a few clicks to do this. When you sign in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you can find various options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. As you can also change the PHP version for your account through the same section, you will need to enable Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set the PHP release as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the website hosting account as a whole.
