A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to work with any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which need the instrument tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the cloud web hosting plan that you choose. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it will take you just several clicks to do this. Since we support several different releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, and you don't need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app that requires Zend Optimizer without troubles, yet if you're unsure how to proceed, you can get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.
