What's IonCube? Precisely how does IonCube work and when do you need it for your PHP apps?
In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you buy web software encrypted 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 website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this will increase the overall speed of your website.
