Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected code, which is not 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 specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular because it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you want to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites which require the instrument usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
