To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted 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 a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot faster and this will increase the overall speed of your site.
