To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed much faster and this will boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux web hosting that we offer and you are able to enable it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you can take advantage of script apps that need it. You are able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you are able to proceed and set up the application that you'd like right away. The same section allows you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support several versions on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a release that you have never used so far, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can 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 Hosting

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 that requires this tool in order to work efficiently. With several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this every time you move to a different version, and when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
