Plenty of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular as 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 run efficiently on a web server subsequently is when another tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you would like to use any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, sites that need the instrument tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.
