To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed much faster and this can increase the overall speed of your website.
