What precisely is IonCube? Why is it present on almost every present-day server running PHP?
In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of 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 would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. If you acquire web software protected 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 web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.
