Numerous licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used because it can be used to modify any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to work correctly on a web server subsequently is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you'd like to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is installed on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites that require the tool generally perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed quicker.
