A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. When you would like to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, sites which require the instrument generally perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed more quickly.
