One of the most popular encryption software tools used for this particular purpose is named Zend Guard and it is very popular since it can be used to change any kind of PHP 4, PHP 5, PHP 7 and PHP 8 code. The only method for the protected files to run efficiently on a web server afterwards is when one more instrument called Zend Optimizer is available. In case you would like to employ any paid web software that requires Zend Optimizer, you need to ensure that it's installed on the server where you will host your site. Furthermore, sites which need the instrument usually perform better because their code is already precompiled and optimized, and therefore it's executed faster.
