Lots of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular since it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run the right way on a web server after that is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you'd like to work with any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites that require the tool generally perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
