A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely because it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server after that is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you want to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
