Find what IonCube is and also why it’s set up on just about every server running PHP these days.
In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot faster and this can improve the general speed of your site.
