In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. When you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more rapidly and this can raise the overall speed of your site.
