A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used since it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites that require the tool can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.
