Numerous licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular as it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you would like to employ any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites which require the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

When you get a Linux shared website hosting package through our company, you're able to select the PHP version, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel for any of the versions that we provide - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this area, you'll be able to use a small software tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and activate or deactivate PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you will not need any previous experience because enabling Zend Optimizer is as simple as clicking a button. More skilled users can do the same thing by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code in a specific domain folder. In case you need any help to activate the instrument, you are able to contact our tech support team at any time.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each and every semi-dedicated server that we supply and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do this. After you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you need to go to the PHP Configuration section where you will find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you don't need to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we've also left the possibility for more knowledgeable users to set the PHP version as well as the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a specific domain folder. The file will have effect just for this specific website, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
