Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the protected files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the tool tend to perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
