Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular as it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is set up on the server where you will host your website. Also, sites which need the tool can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed faster.
