Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is if an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you want to work with any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites which need the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
