To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. If you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot faster and this can raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud website hosting that we offer and you are able to activate it anytime with just a few clicks, so you can use script applications that need it. You will be able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, so you're able to proceed and set up the app that you need right away. The very same section allows you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our advanced cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used to date, you will need to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
