In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you acquire 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 available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed faster and this can increase the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the shared hosting packages which we supply, so if you require it in order to install and run some script application that needs it, you can activate it with a click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to switch the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable the tool for every new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, you can employ 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 site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you'll be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you will not be able to do with numerous other website hosting providers out there.
