Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular since it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to work with any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll 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, which means that it's executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all servers that are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud hosting you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the software instrument so that any script app which requires it will function properly within your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the same area you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, therefore any time you move 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 work with multiple PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the instrument for a specific site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
