A lot of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widespread due to the fact that it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites that need the tool usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
