Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular as it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which need the instrument can perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
