To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. In case you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot faster and this will raise the general speed of your website.
