Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular as it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Furthermore, websites which require the tool generally perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.
