Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular as it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to work with any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites that require the tool will perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud hosting you obtain, you'll be able to take advantage of the instrument to guarantee that any script application which needs it will operate properly in your account. By using a convenient software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that whenever you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. As our platform allows you to use multiple PHP versions at once, more advanced users can activate the instrument for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
