In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. In case you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your site.
