Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to employ any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which require the tool usually perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
