To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot quicker and this can improve the general speed of your site.
