In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed much faster and this can improve the overall speed of your website.
