Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the tool generally perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
