To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. When you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool 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 among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this can boost the overall speed of your site.
