In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. When you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed quicker and this will boost the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single shared web hosting that we provide and you're able to activate it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you can employ script apps that need it. You will be able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you'll be able to proceed and set up the app that you need without delay. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. If you move to a release that you have never used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
