Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted code, which is not human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used since it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you wish to use any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites that require the instrument will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more quickly.
