To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this will increase the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux shared website hosting that we supply and you're able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to employ script applications that require it. You're able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, therefore you'll be able to proceed and set up the application that you would like right away. The same section allows you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support numerous releases on our leading-edge cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you've never used so far, you will need to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
