Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is popular because it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you want to use any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which require the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting package you choose, you will be able to activate the software tool to ensure that any kind of script app that needs it will operate properly within your account. Using a convenient software tool in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of options with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the very same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that any time you change to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to use a couple of PHP releases at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
