To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this can raise the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all the cloud hosting plans that we supply, so when you need it in order to set up and run a script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to change the PHP version that is active for your account from the same section, you need to enable the tool for any new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you'll be able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you are able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - something that you won't be able to do with various other hosting service providers available on the market.
