In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is available 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 installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more quickly and this will enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud website hosting that we offer and you'll be able to activate it anytime with only a few clicks, so you can take advantage of script apps which need it. You can do that from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, therefore you are able to proceed and set up the app that you'd like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP release that's active for your account, as we support several releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you switch to a version that you have not used so far, you will need to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced 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.
