In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed 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 known as ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot faster and this will enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud hosting package that we offer and you can enable it anytime with only a few clicks, so you'll be able to use script apps which need it. You'll be able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you are able to go ahead and set up the app that you need without delay. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support a variety of versions on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a release that you haven't used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
