Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to employ any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites which need the instrument can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer is present on our custom-made cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the website hosting plan that you select. It can be enabled from the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the accounts and it'll take you as little as a couple of clicks to do this. Given that we support several 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 have not used yet. This is quite simple though - the php.ini file where you can enable and deactivate various PHP extensions can be handled with a point-and-click software instrument, so you will not need any kind of coding skills or previous expertise. Our hosting services will allow you to run any script-driven app which needs Zend Optimizer without difficulties, still in case you're not sure what to do, you can contact our 24/7 tech support team and they'll activate the instrument for you.
