Many licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. If you'd like to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites that require the instrument can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
