Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread since it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you would like to employ any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the tool will perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more quickly.
