In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more rapidly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud website hosting package that we offer and you're able to enable it anytime with only a few clicks, so you can employ script applications that require it. You are able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, therefore you can go ahead and install the app that you need right away. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP release that's active for your account, as we support multiple releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. If you move to a release that you've never used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
