In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot faster and this will improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every shared plan that we provide and you are able to activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you will be able to employ script applications that need it. You will be able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and set up the app that you need right away. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support multiple releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a version that you have never used to date, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
