A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the tool can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-built cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the cloud website hosting package that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as a few clicks to do that. Since we support many different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you will not need any computer programming skills or previous experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, but if you're unsure what to do, you will be able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll enable the instrument for you.
