A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's very popular since it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run properly on a web server after that is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you wish to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites that require the instrument will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.

Zend Optimizer is set up on all the servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. No matter which cloud hosting you select, you can activate the software tool to ensure that any script app that needs it will operate perfectly in your account.
