To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this can raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the cloud web hosting plans that we offer, so every time you need it in order to install and execute some script application that needs it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to switch the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you will have to enable the tool for each new version that you set. If you are more skillful, you will be able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. This way you're able to run both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with a lot of other website hosting providers available on the market.
