A nulled script is when somebody changes the script to remove the protection implemented by the author of the script. Basically, the equivalent of pirated software.
They way they null it is to remove any call-homes to check if it has been legally obtained, amongst other things.

A lot of hosts offer scripts for free (it may be included in the price) as they get bulk discounts for buying several licenses. cPanel for example has partner NOC discounts, same goes for CloudLinux, as well as WHMCS.

Nulled scripts are script that removed a protection and used as stolen script. So you use a paid script without a vailid license. So nulled is some as stolen.

We can have risks when using a nulled script as get hacks or malware/virus.
Stay away from nulled scripts unless it is just for testing and doing it on a testing server.

A lot of "sharing" sites have pirated software and you don't know what else they've injected into the software. An null script is illegal and considered pirated software. Beyond the null script software I would use anything downloaded from "sharing" sites at your own risk.

Nulled scripts can be referred as crack, and it permits one to use a commercial software even if there is no license key. It is not advisable to use nulled scripts as they may come with loopholes that can be exploited by hackers and cause a security breach. Like the different of media piracy, people are tempted to uses them because of the cost of licensed software and restrictions does not stop some people but rather encourages them to do illegal things.

The other members gave you the information on what a nulled script is so I am not going to explain that again. I will tell you that sometime a nulled script will have a virus and/or a backdoor that will let a hacker gain access to your website.

Personally I don't think that the risks of these or other problems is worth using nulled scripts.

For exmple you download a stolen wordpress theme from them but you can never get updates from the author.

You will face many security issues and it's illegal to use nulled products.
