To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux shared web hosting package that we provide and you'll be able to activate it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to employ script applications which need it. You are able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you will be able to proceed and install the app that you need without delay. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that's active for your account, as we support a number of versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used so far, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
