Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to work with any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the tool usually perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which hosting you get, you can take advantage of the software tool to guarantee that any kind of script application which requires it will work perfectly as part of your account. Using a convenient software tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first web hosting account ever, you won't have any difficulties. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to work with a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
