In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed faster and this will enhance the overall speed of your website.
