A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you wish to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the instrument usually perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
