Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server after that is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the tool generally perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-built cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the website hosting package that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that is provided with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Because we support a number of different versions 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 have not 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 managed with a point-and-click tool, and you will not need any kind of computer programming skills or previous expertise. Our web hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you're unsure what you should do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they'll enable the tool for you.
