To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous 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, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more rapidly and this will improve the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every hosting that we provide and you are able to enable it anytime with just a few clicks, so you can work with script applications that need it. You'll be able to do that 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 takes effect in a minute, so you'll be able to go ahead and set up the application that you'd like right away. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support a number of releases on our hi-tech cloud platform. If you switch to a release that you have never used to date, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
