Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that is required to run files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread application which is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by many corporations that make paid script apps, so if you purchase such an application for your site, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you may also use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or clients will not be able to change it in any way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform much better owing to the fact that their PHP code is precompiled, therefore it is already optimized and will be executed much more rapidly.

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. Regardless of which website hosting you choose, you can take advantage of the instrument to ensure that any kind of script app that needs it will work flawlessly within your account.

Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't encounter any troubles. In the very same section you can also pick the PHP version for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, so whenever you move to one that you have not used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click.
