To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed a lot faster and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers which are part of our cloud website hosting platform, so whatever the Linux shared website hosting that you choose during the signup process, you will be able to activate it from the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complicated. The same section allows you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you want to switch to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is quite flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 support team will assist you within minutes.
