Plenty of licensed and some cost-free script-driven apps have encrypted program code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to avoid the reverse engineering and the illegal use of such applications. Among the most popular file encryption tools used for this purpose is called Zend Guard and it is popular as it can be used to alter any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to work correctly on a web server afterwards is when another instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. If you want to employ any kind of paid web software requiring Zend Optimizer, you have to ensure that it's set up on the server where you will host your site. Also, sites that need the tool usually perform better as their program code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed faster.
