Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encoded code, which is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used because 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 work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you'd like to work with any kind of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites that need the tool can perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed faster.
