In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more quickly and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all of the web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the cloud plan that you select during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complicated. The very same section will allow you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and in case you decide to switch to a different version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is really flexible, you can even set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team will help you quickly.
