Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widespread due to the fact that it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to run properly on a web server subsequently is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you wish to work with any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites which require the tool tend to perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is installed on all the servers which are a part of our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. Regardless of which Linux hosting package you get, you will be able to take advantage of the software tool to ensure that any script application that needs it will work perfectly as part of your account.

Zend Optimizer is one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties. In the same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, thus any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with just a click. As our platform enables you to use several PHP versions at once, more advanced users can enable the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
