In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed much faster and this will raise the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is available on all of the web servers which are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore whatever the cloud hosting that you choose during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as 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 complicated. The very same section enables you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), which means that in case you want to move to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team will help you quickly.
