A lot of licensed and some free of charge script-driven applications have encrypted code, which isn't human readable. The concept behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering as well as the unwanted usage of such apps. Among the most popular encryption instruments used for this specific purpose is named Zend Guard and it is commonly used due to the fact that it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the encoded files to run effectively on a web server afterwards is if an extra instrument called Zend Optimizer is there. In case you'd like to work with any paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you'll host your website. Also, sites that require the instrument can perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it's executed more rapidly.
