Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widespread as it can be used to change any kind of 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 when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you wish to use any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites which need the instrument usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the hosting plan that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it will take you only a couple of clicks to do this. Because we support several 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 each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, so you won't need any coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet when you are unsure how to proceed, you're able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.
