What precisely is IonCube? Why is it present on almost every present-day server running PHP?
To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this will increase the general speed of your website.
