To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more quickly and this will improve the overall speed of your site.
