Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have protected code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal usage of such apps. Among the most popular file encryption software instruments used for this specific purpose is known as Zend Guard and it's popular since it can be used to modify any PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to work correctly on a web server after that is when a second tool called Zend Optimizer is there. In the event that you wish to use any type of paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it's set up on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites which require the tool usually perform better since their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
