In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more quickly and this will improve the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux cloud hosting that we supply and you'll be able to activate it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you can use script applications which need it. You are able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and install the app that you need right away. The same section will allow you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support numerous versions on our advanced cloud platform. If you move to a release that you have never used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific 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

As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application which requires the tool in order to function properly. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Since we support several releases of PHP at the same time, you will need to do this each and every time you move to a different version, and if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple websites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
