In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this will improve the overall speed of your website.
