To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed much faster and this will improve the overall speed of your site.
