Many licensed and some free of cost script-driven applications have encoded code, that isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the not authorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used because it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the encrypted files to work the right way on a web server subsequently is when an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you wish to employ any type of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites which need the instrument usually perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
