In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay 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 an instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more quickly and this can raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud package that we provide and you can enable it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to work with script applications that need it. You can do that from the PHP Configuration area 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, so you are able to proceed and set up the application that you would like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support numerous versions on our hi-tech cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
