To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary 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 known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more quickly and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.
