Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites that require 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 Website Hosting

When you purchase a website hosting plan through our company, you will be able to select the PHP release, which will be active for your account based on what your script applications need. You'll be able to activate Zend Optimizer with a single click in the Advanced area of your 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 area, you can take advantage of a small software tool that will allow you to control the php.ini file for your account and enable or disable PHP extensions with On and Off buttons, so you will not need any kind of previous experience because activating Zend Optimizer will be as simple as clicking a button. More experienced users will be able to do the same by adding a php.ini file with the necessary code in a particular domain folder.
