To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this can improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud hosting that we provide and you'll be able to enable it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to work with script apps which require it. You are able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to proceed and install the application that you would like without delay. The same section allows you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a release that you haven't used so far, you will have to enable 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 whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
