In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed a lot quicker and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.
