To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed much faster and this will improve the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every cloud website hosting that we offer and you can activate it anytime with only a few clicks, so you'll be able to take advantage of script apps that need it. You can do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, therefore you'll be able to proceed and set up the application that you would like without delay. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support a variety of releases on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a version that you have not used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

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