In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed faster and this will boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single shared web hosting that we supply and you'll be able to enable it anytime with just a few clicks, so you can take advantage of script applications which require it.
