To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot quicker and this will enhance the overall speed of your website.
