In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. When you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this will raise the general speed of your site.
