Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites that need the instrument generally perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't encounter any difficulties. In the exact same section you can also select the PHP release for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, so whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a single click.
