In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed quicker and this will boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud hosting plan that we provide and you can activate it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you can employ script applications that need it. You're able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you are able to proceed and install the app that you would like right away. The same section allows you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support numerous versions on our cutting-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a release that you have never used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which needs the tool so as to function efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support a couple of releases of PHP concurrently, you will have to do this each time you switch to a new version, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
