In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your site.
