In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website 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 set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your website.
