A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widely used as it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to work efficiently on a web server after that is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you wish to use any paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites that require the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
