To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed a lot quicker and this can raise the general speed of your website.
