Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is commonly used because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run properly on a web server afterwards is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to work with any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the tool generally perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud web hosting package you pick, you'll be able to use the software tool so that any kind of script app which needs it will work perfectly as part of your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the website hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate many different functions with a button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first website hosting account ever, you won't have any troubles. In the very same section you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that each time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Because our platform allows you to take advantage of several PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting
