Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, websites which need the instrument usually perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
