Zend Optimizer is a tool, that is needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard - a well-known app that is used to encode 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 lot of corporations that make paid script applications, so when you obtain such an application for your site, you'll most likely need Zend Optimizer to be available on the server where you will host it. If you're a programmer, you can also use Zend Guard to protect your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to alter it in any way. Websites which use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better because their PHP code is precompiled, so it's already optimized and will be executed much faster.

Zend Optimizer in Hosting

Zend Optimizer is present on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it regardless of the hosting package that you choose.
