Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work properly on a web server afterwards is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you would like to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites which need the tool usually perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
