Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular because it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you would like to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which need the tool generally perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
