Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular as it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work properly on a web server after that is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you'd like to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that need the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the cloud hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it will take you just a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that 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 each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click tool, so you won't need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, still in case you're unsure what to do, you'll be able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the instrument for you.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers

Furthermore, you may also employ a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for each individual site that you host in the account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with just a couple of lines of code inside it. If you don't have previous experience and you are not sure how to do that, our 24/7 tech support can assist you.
