A lot of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected code, which is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's very popular as it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work properly on a web server after that is if an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to work with any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
