To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed quicker and this can boost the overall speed of your site.
