Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread because it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you would like to employ any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. In addition, sites which need the instrument usually perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more rapidly.
