Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you'd like to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites which require the tool can perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
