To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. When you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed faster and this can increase the overall speed of your website.
