A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular because it can be used to change any PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to use any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites that require the instrument usually perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.
