In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more rapidly and this can increase the overall speed of your website.
