To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. If 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 present on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed faster and this can boost the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all cloud hosting plans which we provide, so every time you need it in order to set up and execute a script app that needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to switch the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for every new version which you set. If you are more experienced, you're able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can run both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you won't be able to do with a lot of other web hosting service providers on the market.
