A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely because 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 afterwards is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which need the tool tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our tailor-made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the cloud website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel which is included with all the accounts and it will take you only a few clicks to do that. Because we support a number of different versions of PHP (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), you will have to activate Zend Optimizer each time you switch the version to one you haven't used yet. This is a piece of cake though - the php.ini file where you can enable and disable various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click tool, so you don't need any coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, but in case you're not sure what you should do, you are able to contact our 24/7 tech support crew and they can activate the instrument for you.
