A lot of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular because it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to employ any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the tool tend to perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our tailor-made cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the shared hosting
plan that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all the accounts and it will take you as little as several clicks to do this. Since we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you won't need any kind of programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer with no difficulties, still in case you're not sure how to proceed, you're able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they'll activate the tool for you.
