Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it is used widely since it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run effectively on a web server subsequently is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you wish to employ any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, websites which require the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed quicker.
