Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you want to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that require the tool will perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
Zend Optimizer can be found on our tailor-made cloud platform and you will be able to use it whatever the shared hosting plan that you select. It can be activated from the Hepsia Control Panel that is included with all of the accounts and it'll take you as little as several clicks to do this. Because we support many 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'll need to activate Zend Optimizer each time you change the version to one you haven't used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can activate and disable various PHP extensions can be operated with a point-and-click instrument, so you do not need any kind of programming skills or previous experience. Our website hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven application that requires Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still when you are unsure what to do, you are able to get in touch with our 24/7 technical support team and they'll enable the instrument for you.
