To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can increase the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all web servers which are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore whatever the shared hosting that you pick during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The same section allows you to pick the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), so if you would like to move to a different version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is really flexible, you can even set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you want to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team shall assist you in no time.
