A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to use any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites that require the tool generally perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed quicker.
