In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this will boost the general speed of your website.
