To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can increase the overall speed of your site.
