In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this will raise the overall speed of your website.
