Zend Optimizer is a software instrument, that is required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard - a popular app that is employed to encrypt PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 files with the objective to protect them from tampering with the program code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by a large number of corporations which create paid script applications, so in case you get such an app for your website, you will probably need Zend Optimizer to be present on the server where you'll host it. In case you are a programmer, you can use Zend Guard to protect your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better as their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed a lot quicker.
Zend Optimizer in Website Hosting
Zend Optimizer comes with all the servers which are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. No matter which Linux website hosting you acquire, you'll be able to use the software instrument so that any script application that requires it will function flawlessly within your account.

Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not experience any issues. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and numerous versions of 5, therefore any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a single click.
