In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed much faster and this can enhance the general speed of your website.
