To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed much faster and this will raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each shared website hosting plan that we offer and you'll be able to activate it anytime with just a few clicks, so you can employ script applications which need it. You're able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to go ahead and install the app that you need without delay. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support multiple versions on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a version that you have never used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
