Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded program code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's commonly used because it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. When you would like to employ any type of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, websites which need the tool usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
