To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. When you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot faster and this can raise the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all shared hosting packages which we provide, so when you require it in order to install and execute some script app which needs it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you are able to switch the PHP version that is active for your account from the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for each new version that you set. If you're more experienced, you can take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you are able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - something that you cannot do with many other hosting service providers available on the market.
