Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular because it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server after that is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you'd like to use any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites which require the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our in-house built cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the shared hosting
package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that.

This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click application, so you will not need any computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without troubles, still when you are not sure what you should do, you can contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they can enable the tool for you.
Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

packages.

Both changing your version and activating Zend Optimizer for the new one takes just a few clicks in the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel that is used to control the semi-dedicated accounts. What is more, you may even use a different version of PHP and enable or disable Zend for every single site that you host in the account. You can do this by employing a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of code inside it. In case you don't have previous experience and you are unsure how to do this, our 24/7 technical support will assist.
