In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed a lot quicker and this can enhance the overall speed of your site.
