Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which require the tool will perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
When you obtain a Linux shared hosting through our company, you're able to pick the PHP version, that will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You can activate Zend Optimizer with just a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel for all of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. Once you go to this section, you are able to employ a small software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions using On and Off buttons, so you won't need any previous knowledge because activating Zend Optimizer is as easy as clicking a button. More advanced users will be able to do the same by placing a php.ini file with the needed code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the instrument, you'll be able to contact our tech support team anytime.
