In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more rapidly and this can improve the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers which are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so regardless of the Linux web hosting package that you choose during the signup process, you will be able to activate it through the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The exact same section will allow you to select 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), and in case you would like to switch to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will assist you quickly.
