Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is popular because it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to employ any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites which need the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.
