Zend Optimizer is a software tool, that is required to run files protected with Zend Guard - a widespread application that is used to encrypt PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the idea to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a great number of organizations which develop paid script applications, so in case you obtain such an app for your website, you will most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and ensure that your site visitors or clients won't be able to change it in whatever way. Sites which use Zend Optimizer generally perform better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform.

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