To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot faster and this can enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that whatever the hosting that you select during the signup process, you can activate it through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The same section enables you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and if you choose to switch to another version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is very flexible, you can set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall help you very quickly.
