Lots of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular since it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you want to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which need the tool generally perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.
