In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed faster and this will raise the general speed of your site.
