To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this will raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Web Hosting

The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The same section enables you to select the PHP version 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), which means that in case you would like to switch to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well.
