Numerous licensed and some cost-free script-driven applications have encoded code, which isn't human readable. The idea behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such applications. One of the most popular encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's used widely since it can be used to change all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server after that is when a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. If you wish to employ any type of paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you need to make sure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your site. Also, websites which require the tool can perform better due to the fact that their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it is executed quicker.
