Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to work with any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites that require the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our tailor-made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the web hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all accounts and it will take you as little as a couple of clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support a number of different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, and you won't need any coding skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that needs Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, still when you are not sure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will activate the tool for you.
