Lots of licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server after that is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites which require the instrument will perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our tailor-made cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the web hosting package that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all accounts and it will take you as little as a few clicks to do this. Given that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, and you will not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, yet in case you are not sure how to proceed, you can contact our 24/7 technical support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.

In addition, you can pick the PHP release which will be active for your account, therefore if you move to some other version, you only need to go to the Advanced part of your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel and click on the On button for Zend Optimizer - it is as simple as that.
