In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can boost the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the shared hosting packages that we supply, so when you require it in order to install and execute some script application which requires it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you're able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the tool for every new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you are able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you are able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - something that you will not be able to do with lots of other hosting providers out there.
