Lots of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded program 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 software tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's 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 the right way on a web server subsequently is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you wish to work with any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, websites that need the tool usually perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
