A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server after that is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you wish to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that need the instrument will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux shared service you get, you'll be able to take advantage of the tool to guarantee that any kind of script app that needs it will work perfectly as part of your account. By using a handy software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate various options with a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so each time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to use several PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Both changing the version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel that is used to take care of the semi-dedicated accounts. What's more, you can also employ a different release of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single site that you host from your account. This is possible by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code in it.
