Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's very popular since 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 if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you would like to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that need the tool usually perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.
