Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run properly on a web server after that is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites which need the instrument tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are a part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud web hosting you obtain, you can use the software tool to ensure that any script app that needs it will operate perfectly within your account. By using a convenient instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the website hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate many different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you will not have any issues. In the exact same area you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, and each time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to work with a couple of PHP versions at once, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
