Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widespread due to the fact that it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you would like to work with any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites which need the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our custom-made cloud platform and you will be able to use it regardless of the shared website hosting package that you choose. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it'll take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Considering that we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll have to enable Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you have not used so far. This is very simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software instrument, and you don't need any kind of coding skills or previous practical experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but if you are not sure what you should do, you'll be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support crew and they will enable the instrument for you.
