Find out what IonCube is and the reasons why it’s installed on nearly every server running PHP nowadays.
To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. If you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed quicker and this can improve the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
If you obtain a shared plan
from our company, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application that needs the tool to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer you a few different releases of PHP, so if you switch 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 enabled. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a click and it'll take effect right away.
