Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that 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 tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server after that is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to use any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites that need the instrument can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared hosting you choose, you'll be able to activate the software instrument so that any kind of script application that needs it will operate properly as part of your account. By using a convenient software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different settings with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first website hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the very same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can activate the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We offer Zend Optimizer with all our Linux semi-dedicated hosting services. It is available on our cutting-edge cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven application that you wish to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you may also change the PHP release which your hosting account uses. For each and every new version that you set, just click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used releases of PHP, which means that you will not need to do that every time. If you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
