Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server after that is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you would like to employ any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites that require the tool will perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the web hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do that. Considering that we support a number of different releases 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'll need to activate Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you have not used yet. 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 tool, so you don't need any kind of programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, but when you're unsure how to proceed, you can get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll activate the instrument for you.
