Learn what Zend Optimizer is and exactly how it might impact the overall performance of any PHP app.
Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's required to run files encrypted with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 so as to protect them from reverse engineering and unauthorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. When you wish to protect your custom-made script, for instance, you can employ Zend Guard and your code will not be human readable, but you will also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your blog. Various pre-made script-driven apps, in particular ones which are paid, also require Zend Optimizer in order to work effectively because their core code is often not free to modify. Sites which use the instrument are usually speedier since their code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer is accessible on our in-house made cloud platform and you can use it whatever the shared hosting
