Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encrypted program code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the unwanted use of such apps. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is very popular as it can be used to change any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to work correctly on a web server after that is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you wish 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 site. In addition, sites that need the tool usually perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
