To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot faster and this will enhance the general speed of your website.
