Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely since it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server after that is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites which need the tool tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do this. Due to the fact that 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 every time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, and you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without any troubles, yet if you are not sure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.
