To prevent 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 applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this can improve the overall speed of your website.
