Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven apps have encrypted code, that is not human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is used widely as it can be used to alter any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encrypted files to run the right way on a web server subsequently is if a second tool called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you wish to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Also, websites that require the tool tend to perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed quicker.
