Plenty of licensed and some free of cost script-driven apps have encoded program code, that isn't human readable. The reasoning behind this is to prevent the reverse engineering as well as the illegal use of such applications. One of the most popular file encryption software tools used for this specific purpose is called Zend Guard and it is commonly used as it can be used to change any type of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run the right way on a web server after that is if another tool called Zend Optimizer is available. If you'd like to employ any paid web software which requires Zend Optimizer, you should ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your website. Also, sites that need the tool will perform better as their code is already precompiled and optimized, meaning that it is executed faster.
