Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely because it can be used to modify all 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 when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to employ any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the tool will perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
