Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used since it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server after that is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you would like to employ any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that require the instrument will perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the shared hosting plan that you select. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it'll take you only a few clicks to do that. Since we support many different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you'll need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you change the version to one you haven't used so far. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software tool, therefore you don't need any programming skills or previous expertise. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application which requires Zend Optimizer without any troubles, but when you are not sure how to proceed, you will be able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they'll enable the tool for you.
