To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed much faster and this can enhance the general speed of your website.
