Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular as it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument usually perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which hosting you pick, you can take advantage of the tool to guarantee that any kind of script application which requires it will work perfectly within your account. Using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all of the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not encounter any problems. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Because our platform allows you to employ several PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can activate the instrument for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
