Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to work effectively on a web server afterwards is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. If you'd like to use any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites that need the tool will perform better because their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more quickly.
