What's IonCube? How exactly does IonCube work and do you really need it for your PHP software?
To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can enhance the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader comes with all the shared web hosting plans which we offer, so any time you need it to set up and run a script application which needs it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you can change the PHP release that is active for your account from the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for every new version that you set. If you're more experienced, 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 website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you will be able to run both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you can't do with many other hosting suppliers on the market.
