Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used due to the fact that it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you would like to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, sites which require the instrument usually perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer is available on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud web hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Since we support many different 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 will have to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, and you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but if you are unsure what you should do, you can contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
We've installed Zend Optimizer on all servers that are a part of our hi-tech cloud website hosting platform and considering that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on it, you will be able to enable and take advantage of Zend for any kind of script application which you wish to use with no more than a click. In addition, you can pick the PHP version which will be active for your account, thus if you move to some other release, you only need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it's as easy as that. If you switch the version back, Zend will already be active. More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to enable Zend Optimizer only for a single site by placing a php.ini file with the needed program code inside the corresponding domain folder.
