Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have protected program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is popular because it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to work effectively on a web server subsequently is when an additional tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In the event that you would like to work with any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your site. In addition, sites that require the tool tend to perform better due to the fact that their program code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.
