What's IonCube? How exactly does IonCube work and when do you need it for your PHP software?
To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.
