Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used because it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you would like to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument will perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.
