In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this will enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud hosting that we provide and you are able to enable it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to take advantage of script apps which require it. You can do this from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you'll be able to go ahead and install the app that you'd like without delay. The very same section allows you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support several releases on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a release that you haven't used so far, you will need to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
