In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed faster and this can boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, so whatever the Linux cloud package that you get during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The same section enables you to pick the PHP release 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 in case you choose to switch to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is really flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team will be able to assist you quickly.
