Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widely used since it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you would like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
