Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used because it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server subsequently is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you wish to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which require the tool generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which website hosting plan you get, you can activate the software tool to ensure that any script application which needs it will work properly in your account. Using a handy software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various functions with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
