To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed much faster and this will raise the overall speed of your website.
