Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is widely used as it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you'd like to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, websites that need the instrument can perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.
