To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed much faster and this can increase the general speed of your site.
