Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to run the right way on a web server afterwards is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you wish to work with any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. Furthermore, websites that require the instrument generally perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
