Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you'd like to employ any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You are able to enable Zend Optimizer with every single semi-dedicated server that we supply and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. When you sign in to your Hepsia Control Panel, you have to visit the PHP Configuration section where you will find many different options and On/Off buttons for each one of them. Zend is one of these options, which means that you will not have to do anything more difficult than clicking on its button. Since you can also switch the PHP release for your account through the same section, you'll have to activate Zend for any new version that you use.
