In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this will enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single web hosting that we provide and you are able to enable it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to take advantage of script apps which need it. You'll be able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you can go ahead and set up the application that you need without delay. The very same section allows you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support multiple releases on our advanced cloud platform. In case you switch to a version that you haven't used to date, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
