A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular as it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you want to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites that require the tool usually perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't encounter any issues. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to use multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

We provide Zend Optimizer with all of our Linux semi-dedicated packages. It is installed on our revolutionary cloud platform, therefore if any script-driven app that you wish to use requires it to function, you just have to activate it with a click in the Hepsia Control Panel.

Hepsia remembers your selection for previously used versions of PHP, so you won't have to do this every time. In the event that you have more experience, you'll be able to take full advantage of the flexibility of our cloud platform and use a php.ini file to set a different PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a specific website without the need of altering the settings for the whole semi-dedicated server account.
