To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your website.
