Lots of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular due to the fact that it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you would like to employ any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that require the tool tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
