What precisely is IonCube? Why is it present on nearly every present-day web hosting server running PHP?
In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed quicker and this will boost the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Web Hosting
If you get a web hosting
from our company, it will be created on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script application that requires the instrument to function appropriately. We also supply a few different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you go back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect without delay.
