Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have protected program code, which isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption tools used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it's widely used as it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you want to employ any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. In addition, sites which require the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
