Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widely used because it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you'd like to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites which require the instrument can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house built cloud platform and you are able to use it whatever the cloud web hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do this. Because we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is really easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, and you will not need any computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but if you're unsure how to proceed, you are able to contact our 24/7 technical support team and they will enable the instrument for you.
