Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run properly on a web server after that is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you'd like to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that require the tool usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.
