Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server subsequently is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites that require the tool can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
