To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed quicker and this will increase the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux shared web hosting that we offer and you are able to activate it anytime with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to employ script apps that require it. You are able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you will be able to proceed and set up the app that you'd like without delay. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that's active for your account, as we support multiple versions on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a version that you've never used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
