Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you would like to employ any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites that need the tool can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting

Zend Optimizer comes with all servers that are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux cloud hosting you choose, you can activate the software tool to ensure that any script app which needs it will work properly within your account. By using a handy tool from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the hosting accounts, you can activate and deactivate a variety of settings with one button. Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the exact same area you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you change to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. Since our platform enables you to use a couple of PHP versions simultaneously, more advanced users can enable the tool for a particular site with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
