In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. When you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed quicker and this can enhance the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all of the web servers which are a part of our cloud hosting platform, so regardless of the cloud plan that you select during the signup process, you can enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complicated. The exact same section enables 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), which means that if you choose to switch to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is rather flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall assist you very quickly.
