Many licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server after that is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you would like to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more quickly.
