Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widely used due to the fact that it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to work with any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which require the instrument tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
Zend Optimizer in Shared Hosting
All shared hosting accounts that we offer are set up on our state-of-the-art cluster platform and Zend Optimizer is installed on all of the servers which are part of the clusters. Therefore, you're able to install and run script-driven apps that require Zend irrespective of the plan that you choose upon signup. The easy to navigate Hepsia Control Panel that is included with the accounts will make the control over your web presence very easy and activating Zend Optimizer makes no exception since it will take a single click to do it. Furthermore, more experienced users can also place a php.ini file in a given domain folder and take advantage of Zend only for a specific domain name. As you can switch between a number of PHP versions, you can activate Zend Optimizer for any of them in exactly the same way and run both new and older apps in the same account.
