What exactly is IonCube? Why is it present on nearly every present-day web hosting server running PHP?
To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more rapidly and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.
