In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot quicker and this will increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the cloud website hosting plan that you get during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The exact same section allows you to choose the PHP release 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), which means that in case you choose to switch to a different version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is rather flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team will be able to assist you in no time.
