What is IonCube? How exactly does IonCube work and when do you really need it for your PHP software?
To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this can increase the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
If you aquire a shared website hosting from our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application which requires the instrument in order to function appropriately. In addition, we offer a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so if you go back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect without delay.
