Zend Optimizer is a popular piece of software, that's needed to execute files encoded with Zend Guard. The latter encodes files created in PHP 4 and PHP 5 in order to protect them from reverse engineering and not authorized usage, thus guarding copyright protected source code. If you wish to protect your custom script, for instance, you will be able to use Zend Guard and your code won't be human readable, but you'll also need Zend Optimizer on the server where you host your website. Various ready-made script-driven apps, especially ones which are paid, also need Zend Optimizer so as to function properly because their core code is generally not free to change. Websites that use the instrument are generally faster since their program code is already optimized and pre-compiled.

Zend Optimizer will be one of these, so even if this is your very first web hosting account ever, you will not have any difficulties.
