Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which need the instrument can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
