Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular because it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. When you'd like to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
