Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular because it can be used to modify any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to employ any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, sites which require the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
