To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more quickly and this will raise the overall speed of your website.

The same section will allow 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), and in case you decide to move to a different version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is quite flexible, you may even set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team shall assist you very quickly.
