Zend Optimizer is an instrument, that's required to execute files encoded with Zend Guard - a widespread app that is used to encode PHP 4 and PHP 5 files with the purpose to protect them from tampering with the code or reverse engineering. Zend Guard is used by lots of organizations which make paid script apps, so if you acquire such an app for your website, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you'll host it. In case you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to secure your program code and make sure that your website visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Sites that use Zend Optimizer generally perform better as their PHP code is precompiled, thus it is already optimized and will be executed quicker.

Zend Optimizer is one of them, so even if this is your very first hosting account ever, you won't experience any issues. In the same area you can also select the PHP version for your account - 4 and several versions of 5, and any time you switch to one that you haven't used yet, you can enable Zend Optimizer for it with a click. Since our platform enables you to employ multiple PHP releases simultaneously, more experienced users can activate the tool for an individual website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
