Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encrypted files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you would like to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that require the tool will perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed more rapidly.
