Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run properly on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you would like to use any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites that need the instrument can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
