What is IonCube? How exactly does IonCube work and when do you really need it for your PHP software?
To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools 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. If you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot faster and this can improve the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
When you aquire a shared plan
through our company, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that requires the tool so as to run appropriately. In addition, we offer several different releases of PHP, so if you change the version, you need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it will take effect instantly.
