A lot of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it's widespread because it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to work the right way on a web server afterwards is when an additional instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you want to use any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that require the tool usually perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more rapidly.
