What is IonCube? How exactly does IonCube work and do you really need it for your PHP applications?
To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more quickly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
If you get a Linux cloud hosting from us, it will be created on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you need to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and if you go back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it takes effect instantly.
