Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites that require the tool usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.

All the cloud web hosting accounts which we provide are generated on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers that are a part of the clusters.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to enable Zend Optimizer with each semi-dedicated server that we offer and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Once you log in to the Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find various options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is among these options, therefore you do not have to do anything more complicated than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP version for your account through the very same section, you will have to activate Zend for any new version which you use. Of course, we have also left the option for more experienced users to set both the PHP version and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by putting a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect just for this particular website, but not for the web hosting account in general.
