Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run effectively on a web server after that is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you want to employ any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites that require the instrument can perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
