Lots of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected program code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work properly on a web server afterwards is if another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you would like to employ any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which require the tool generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
