To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed quicker and this can boost the overall speed of your website.
