A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to run properly on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites which require the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
