In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed quicker and this will raise the overall speed of your site.
