Lots of licensed and some free of charge 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 not authorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption instruments used for this particular purpose is known as Zend Guard and it is widespread as it can be used to change any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the protected files to work efficiently on a web server afterwards is if an extra tool called Zend Optimizer is present. In the event that you want to work with any kind of paid web software which needs Zend Optimizer, you should make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites that require the instrument will perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed more rapidly.
