To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more quickly and this can enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the website hosting plans that we supply, so any time you require it in order to install and run a script app that requires it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the tool for each new version that you set. If you are more skillful, you'll be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you will be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with a lot of other website hosting service providers on the market.
