A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's very popular as it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you'd like to employ any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, sites that need the instrument usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
