In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this can improve the general speed of your website.
