Plenty of licensed and some free script-driven applications have encrypted code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's very popular since it can be used to alter all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server after that is if a second instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you want to use any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it is set up on the server where you'll host your website. Furthermore, sites that require the tool will perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
