Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's widespread due to the fact that it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the protected files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you want to use any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites which need the instrument can perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
