To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you get web software encoded 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 a part of the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this will increase the overall speed of your site.
