A lot of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unauthorized use of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular 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 encoded files to work efficiently on a web server subsequently is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you wish to use any kind 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 site. Furthermore, websites which need the instrument usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed more quickly.
