To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. If you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed a lot faster and this can raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every hosting that we provide and you're able to activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script apps which require it. You can do this through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and set up the app that you would like without delay. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support several releases on our advanced cloud platform. If you move to a release that you have never used so far, you will need to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
