In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this can enhance the general speed of your site.
