Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's commonly used since it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you want to employ any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites that need the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux shared package you pick, you'll be able to activate the instrument to ensure that any kind of script app that needs it will operate flawlessly as part of your account. By using a handy instrument from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any difficulties. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, therefore whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to take advantage of 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.
