Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular because it can be used to change any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you'd like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites that need the instrument usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.
