Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work properly on a web server subsequently is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you'd like to use any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which need the instrument generally perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-built cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the cloud hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all of the accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Due to the fact that we support numerous releases of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be managed with a point-and-click software instrument, therefore you don't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven application which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but if you are unsure how to proceed, you can get in touch with our 24/7 tech support crew and they can activate the tool for you.
