Zend Optimizer is a tool, that's required to execute files encrypted with Zend Guard - a well-known application which is employed 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 number of organizations which create paid script apps, so in case you buy such an application for your site, you will probably 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 shield your code and ensure that your site visitors or customers will not be able to change it in any way. Websites that use Zend Optimizer ordinarily perform much better since their PHP code is precompiled, so it is already optimized and will be executed faster.

Zend Optimizer will be one of them, so even if this happens to be your very first website hosting account ever, you will not have any problems. In the exact same section you can also pick the PHP release for your account - 4 and multiple versions of 5, thus any time you move to one that you have not used yet, you can activate Zend Optimizer for it with a click. As our platform enables you to work with multiple PHP versions simultaneously, more experienced users can enable the tool for a specific website with a php.ini file in a specific domain folder as well.
