In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot quicker and this will boost the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore whatever the shared website hosting plan that you get during the signup process, you can enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in 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 select 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), and in case you choose to move to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is very flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team shall assist you in no time.
