In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot quicker and this can boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the Linux hosting package that you get during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The exact same section enables you to pick 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 switch to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is really flexible, you can even set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder.
