In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed quicker and this can raise the general speed of your site.
