In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. If you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed quicker and this can improve the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore regardless of the shared website hosting plan that you get during the signup process, you can enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The exact same section enables you to select the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you would like to move to some other version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is quite flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder.
