Lots of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular as it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you wish to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which require the tool can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.

When you go to this section, you are able to employ a compact software tool which will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you will not need any kind of previous experience as activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same by placing a php.ini file with the required code in a specific domain folder.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we offer and it takes only a few clicks to do that. When you log in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you should go to the PHP Configuration section where you'll find a variety of options and On/Off buttons for them. Zend is one of these options, so you don't have to do anything more complex than clicking on its button. Since you can also change the PHP version for your account from the same section, you'll need to activate Zend for any new version which you use. In addition, we've also left the possibility for more experienced users to set both the PHP release and the status of Zend Optimizer manually by placing a php.ini file in a particular domain folder. The file will have effect only for this particular site, but not for the hosting account as a whole.
