To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed much faster and this can raise the general speed of your site.
