In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed much faster and this can improve the general speed of your site.
