To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more quickly and this will enhance the general speed of your site.
