Find what IonCube is and the reasons why it’s installed on virtually every server running PHP today.
In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more rapidly and this will raise the general speed of your website.

through us, it'll be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application that needs the tool so as to run properly. In addition, we offer several different releases of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so if you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect right away.

In addition, you'll have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
