In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed quicker and this can boost the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated plans that we provide, so you will not have any problems if you'd like to install and work with some script application that requires the software tool to operate properly. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to move forward with the app installation without delay. For the reason that we employ a revolutionary custom-made platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code in it.
