To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more quickly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.
