Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to use any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that require the instrument usually perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all servers that are a part of our leading-edge cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux website hosting you choose, you will be able to activate the software tool to ensure that any kind of script application that requires it will operate perfectly in your account. By using a handy software tool in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which is provided with all the website hosting accounts, you will be able to activate and deactivate various options with a single button. Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this happens to be your first web hosting account ever, you won't have any problems. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, which means that any time you switch to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click. Since our platform enables you to work with several PHP releases at the same time, more experienced users can enable the tool for a particular website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
