Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have protected code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widely used since it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server after that is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to employ any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites that need the instrument will perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
