Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded program code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread since it can be used to change any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is when an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. If you'd like to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which need the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
