Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's used widely since it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you would like to employ any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, sites that require the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud hosting you get, you'll be able to take advantage of the software tool to guarantee that any script application which needs it will operate perfectly within your account. By using a handy tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate different settings with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any problems. In the very same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform allows you to work with a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
