To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed faster and this can enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers which are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, so irrespective of the Linux shared hosting that you choose during the signup process, you will be able to activate it through the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The same section allows you to pick 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), so if you would like to move to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is flexible, you can set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you'd like to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall assist you in no time.
