In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. When you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed a lot quicker and this will improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud package that we provide and you can enable it at any time with only a few clicks, so you can employ script applications which require it. You can do that from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you can proceed and install the app that you'd like right away. The very same section allows you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support a variety of releases on our hi-tech cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
