Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server after that is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you want to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites that require the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers that are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you obtain, you will be able to use the tool so that any script app that needs it will function perfectly in your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions with a button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any problems. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, and each time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to take advantage of several PHP releases simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the instrument for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

More experienced users will also have the opportunity to set the PHP release and to activate Zend Optimizer just for a single site by putting a php.ini file with the needed code inside the corresponding domain folder.
