To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this can increase the overall speed of your website.
