Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread due to the fact that it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to use any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that need the instrument generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which hosting plan you select, you'll be able to use the software instrument to ensure that any script app that needs it will work perfectly as part of your account. Using a handy tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not experience any troubles. In the same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that each time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Because our platform allows you to employ a couple of PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
