To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. If you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more quickly and this will increase the overall speed of your website.
