What exactly is IonCube? Why is it present on nearly every present-day hosting server running PHP?
To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed a lot faster and this can raise the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
When you aquire a cloud hosting from us, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application which needs the instrument in order to function properly. We also supply a few different versions of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a click and it takes effect instantly.
