Lots of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular since it can be used to change all PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you'd like to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that need the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.
