Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used as it can be used to alter any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you want to use any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that need the tool tend to perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
