What exactly is IonCube? Why is it present on almost any present-day server running PHP?
To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed faster and this will raise the general speed of your website.
