Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to work the right way on a web server after that is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you'd like to use any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
