Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have protected code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such apps. One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server after that is when one more tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to use any type of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites that require the instrument tend to perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
