Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work properly on a web server afterwards is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you want to work with any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, sites that require the instrument can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.
