Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the not authorized use of such apps. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it's used widely due to the fact that it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you wish to use any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites that require the tool can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.
