What is IonCube? Why is it present on nearly every present-day hosting server running PHP?
In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed a lot faster and this can raise the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all the shared hosting
plans that we offer, so if you require it in order to install and run a script application that requires it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to change the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the instrument for each new version that you set. When you're more skillful, you'll be able to take advantage of 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 website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you are able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - something that you will not be able to do with a lot of other website hosting providers out there.
