Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular as it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you want to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that need the instrument usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer in Web Hosting

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our custom cloud platform and you'll be able to use it whatever the web hosting package that you choose. It can be activated through the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all accounts and it'll take you only several clicks to do that. Because we support numerous versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), you will need to enable Zend Optimizer every time you switch the version to one you haven't used so far. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click software tool, and you don't need any coding skills or previous experience. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without any difficulties, but if you're unsure what to do, you can contact our 24/7 technical support team and they can activate the tool for you.
