Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used due to the fact that it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work correctly on a web server after that is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which need the instrument can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.
