Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server subsequently is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you want to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, websites which require the tool can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our custom cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it'll take you only 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 need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click instrument, and you do not need any programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, still when you're not sure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Servers
We provide Zend Optimizer with all our semi-dedicated servers. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, which means that if any script-driven application that you would like to use requires it to work, you just have to activate it with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. You shall find Zend in the PHP Configuration area where you can also change the PHP release which your web hosting account uses. For each and every new version which you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you are all set. Hepsia remembers your choice for previously used releases of PHP, therefore you will not have to do this each time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to benefit from the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file in order to set another PHP version and enable/disable Zend Optimizer for a particular site without altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
