To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed much faster and this can increase the general speed of your website.
