To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this will improve the overall speed of your website.
