To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more rapidly and this can boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all website hosting packages which we provide, so if you require it to set up and execute a script application that needs it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for every new version that you set. If you're more skillful, you can take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you will be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with a lot of other website hosting service providers on the market.
