Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you wish to work with any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which require the tool will perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Cloud Hosting
When you get a cloud plan through our company, you are able to select the PHP version, which will be active for the account based on what your script apps need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel for any of the releases that we offer - 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 and 5.5. When you go to this section, you can employ a small software tool that will allow you to handle the php.ini file for the account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, which means that you will not need any kind of previous knowledge as activating Zend Optimizer will be as easy as clicking a button. More experienced users can do the same by adding a php.ini file with the needed code in a specific domain folder. If you need any help to activate the tool, you can contact our technical support team anytime.
