To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed quicker and this can increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux shared hosting that we provide and you'll be able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to use script applications that need it. You can do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or deactivate 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'd like without delay. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support multiple versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
