To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot faster and this can raise the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux cloud web hosting that we provide and you'll be able to activate it anytime with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to employ script apps that need it. You are able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, so you'll be able to proceed and set up the app that you would like without delay. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support several versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a version that you have not used so far, you will have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
