Numerous licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted use of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is called Zend Guard and it's used widely as it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work properly on a web server subsequently is if one more tool called Zend Optimizer is there. When you wish to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, websites that require the instrument tend to perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
