A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the unauthorized usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is widely used because it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is present. When you wish to use any paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, websites that need the tool can perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it is executed faster.
