Many licensed and some free of charge script-driven apps have encoded code, that is not human readable. The reasoning behind this is to stop the reverse engineering as well as the unauthorized usage of such applications. Among the most popular encryption tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is used widely because it can be used to modify all PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only way for the encoded files to run correctly on a web server subsequently is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is present. When you want to work with any kind of paid web software that needs Zend Optimizer, you have to make sure that it is installed on the server where you will host your website. In addition, sites that need the instrument tend to perform better since their code is already precompiled and optimized, which means that it's executed quicker.
