Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which require the instrument generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.
