In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed quicker and this will improve the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the shared website hosting packages which we offer, so any time you need it to set up and execute some script application that requires it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you'll be able to change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you will have to enable the tool for every new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you'll be able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you will be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with a lot of other web hosting providers on the market.
