To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this can improve the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is present on all web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore whatever the Linux shared website hosting service that you choose during the signup process, you can activate it through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The very same section will allow 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), which means that if you choose to move to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is quite flexible, you can set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team will be able to assist you in no time.
