To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as 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 unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. If you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more rapidly and this can boost the overall speed of your site.
