To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. If you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed much faster and this can boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux hosting service that we provide and you are able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script applications that need it. You're able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, therefore you can proceed and install the application that you would like right away. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that's active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a release that you haven't used to date, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole 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 will be able to use any script application which requires this tool to work properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Since we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you will need to do this each and every time you switch to a different release, but if you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several sites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
