A lot of licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used because it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server after that is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites that require the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
