A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used as it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server after that is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which need the tool usually perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
