A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have protected program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you want to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which require the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
