In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot quicker and this will raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that whatever the Linux hosting that you choose during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complicated. The 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), and if you would like to move to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is rather flexible, you can set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will help you quickly.
