In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it as one of 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 increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers that are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the Linux web hosting service that you get during the signup process, you will be able to activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complicated. The same section allows you to choose the PHP version 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 in case you want to move to a different version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is flexible, you may even set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team will help you in no time.
