This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this can enhance the general speed of your site.
