Lots of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you want to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites that require the tool generally perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all servers which are a part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. No matter which Linux cloud web hosting you choose, you'll be able to take advantage of the software tool to ensure that any script application which needs it will function perfectly within your account. By using a handy software tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate different options with just a single button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you won't have any issues. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
