To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to 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 necessary license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this will raise the general speed of your website.
