By on July 21st, 2016

IonCube is one of the most popular and important PHP Extension. It allows the web application developer to encrypt and sell the license for the PHP application they have developed. Encrypting or Encoding the code allows the developer to protect the code and make a living by selling the license for their PHP application.

Many web applications built in PHP use the IonCube extension to protect the source code. However, If you are a customer of one such application, or if your clients are, you have to enable the IonCube loader.
