In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt 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, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed much faster and this can enhance the general speed of your site.
