Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to work with any kind of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, websites that require the tool tend to perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.
