In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed much faster and this can raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

When you buy a Linux cloud website hosting from us, it'll be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app which requires the tool in order to function appropriately. In addition, we provide a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and in case you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect at once.
