A lot of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widespread due to the fact that it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server after that is if one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to use any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites which require the tool will perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.
