Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to employ any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites that require the tool will perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house built cloud platform and you are able to use it regardless of the shared hosting package that you select. It can be enabled through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Given that we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is very easy though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, so you won't need any kind of computer programming skills or previous practical experience. Our web hosting services allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer with no troubles, but in case you're not sure what you should do, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the instrument for you.
