The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widespread due to the fact that it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4 or PHP 5 code. The only way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server after that is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present.

In addition, sites that need the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more rapidly.
