Zend Optimizer is a well-known piece of software, that's needed to execute files protected with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files written in PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyrighted source code. When you need to protect your custom script, for example, you can use Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your site. Numerous pre-made script-driven applications, in particular ones that are paid, also need Zend Optimizer in order to work effectively because their core code is often not free to change. Sites that use the instrument are often speedier since their program code is already optimized and precompiled.

Zend Optimizer is available on our custom-built cloud platform and you're able to use it regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you choose.
