In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more quickly and this can enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the cloud website hosting plans that we supply, so any time you need it to set up and run some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you need to enable the instrument for any new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you are able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you'll be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites within the same account - something that you cannot do with lots of other website hosting service providers out there.
