Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is commonly used as it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to use any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which require the tool can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.
