Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server after that is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to use any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites that need the instrument usually perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting

All cloud website hosting accounts which we offer are created on our leading-edge cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is set up on all of the servers which are a part of the clusters. For that reason, you're able to set up and run script-driven apps that need Zend regardless of the plan that you pick upon signup. The easy to work with Hepsia Control Panel which comes with the accounts will make the management of your web presence a breeze and activating Zend Optimizer is not an exception because it will take just a single click to do this. Of course, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a particular domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a specific domain. Because you can switch between a variety of PHP releases, you will be able to activate Zend Optimizer for them in exactly the same way and run both new and older applications within the same account.
