To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot faster and this will enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers which are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore whatever the website hosting plan that you get during the signup process, you can activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The same section allows you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), so if you want to move to some other version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too.
