Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are part of our revolutionary cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which cloud web hosting you choose, you can take advantage of the software tool to ensure that any kind of script application that needs it will work perfectly within your account. By using a convenient software instrument in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate many different functions with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't experience any difficulties. In the same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, which means that any time you move to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to use several PHP versions at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
