Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is popular because it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you wish to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are a part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you obtain, you'll be able to activate the software tool to ensure that any script application that needs it will work properly within your account.

Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not have any issues.
