Numerous licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the illegal usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this purpose is named Zend Guard and it's popular due to the fact that it can be used to modify any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The sole way for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server subsequently is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. In case you wish to employ any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that need the tool generally perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed more rapidly.
