A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you would like to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites which need the tool can perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
