Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is widespread because it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to use any type 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. In addition, sites that require the instrument usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. No matter which shared website hosting package you acquire, you will be able to use the tool to guarantee that any kind of script app that requires it will function properly within your account. By using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the hosting accounts, you'll be able to activate and deactivate a variety of functions with one button. Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not encounter any problems. In the very same section you can also choose the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so any time you change to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform allows you to work with multiple PHP releases at once, more experienced users can activate the tool for an individual site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
