In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this can enhance the overall speed of your site.
