In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more quickly and this can enhance the general speed of your site.
