In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. When you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more rapidly and this can boost the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all of the web servers that are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the Linux website hosting that you get during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The same section will allow you to select the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you would like to move to a different version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is really flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team shall help you very quickly.
