Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you'd like to work with any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that require the tool usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.
