To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed faster and this will improve the overall speed of your website.
