To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can boost the general speed of your site.
