What is IonCube? Precisely how does IonCube work and when do you really need it for your PHP apps?
In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more quickly and this will raise the overall speed of your site.

The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel.
