Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is popular because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to run correctly on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you wish to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites which need the instrument generally perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux website hosting package you pick, you can take advantage of the tool to guarantee that any script application that needs it will function flawlessly within your account.

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 area you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform allows you to employ multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can activate the instrument for a specific site 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 packages. It's present on our innovative cloud platform, so if any script-driven application that you need to use requires it to function, 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 can also change the PHP release that your web hosting account uses. For any new version that you set, simply click on the On button for Zend Optimizer and you will be all set. Hepsia will remember your choice for previously used versions of PHP, so you will not have to do this every time. In case you have more experience, you're able to benefit from the versatility of our cloud platform and employ a php.ini file in order to set another PHP release and activate/deactivate Zend Optimizer for a particular site without altering the settings for the entire semi-dedicated server account.
