To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more rapidly and this will increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers which are part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore regardless of the Linux cloud website hosting that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The same section enables you to pick the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that in case you choose to move to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is flexible, you can set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in each domain folder.
