Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server after that is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to use any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites that need the tool usually perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud website hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the accounts and it'll take you just several clicks to do that. Given that we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you have not used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you will not need any programming skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, still when you are unsure what you should do, you can contact our 24/7 technical support team and they'll activate the instrument for you.
