Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to alter any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server after that is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites that need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
