To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change 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 tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed faster and this will increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the shared web hosting packages which we supply, so if you need it in order to install and run some script app which requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable the tool for every new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you will 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 that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you're able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - something that you won't be able to do with a lot of other website hosting service providers available on the market.
