A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely because it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you would like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites which require the instrument generally perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
