To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more quickly and this will boost the general speed of your site.
