Lots of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widely used since it can be used to alter all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to employ any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, websites that require the instrument tend to perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
