In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed much faster and this can boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux cloud hosting package that we supply and you'll be able to enable it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you can work with script apps that need it. You can do that from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you will be able to go ahead and set up the application that you would like without delay. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support a variety of releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a version that you have never used to date, you will need to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which requires the tool in order to work effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Because we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do that every time you move to a different release, and when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
