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 and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. In case you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot quicker and this will increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all of the web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the Linux cloud hosting that you select during the signup process, you will be able to enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The same section enables you to select the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and in case you decide to switch to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is really flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 technical support team will help you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that all the 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 app that needs this tool to function effectively. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. As we support several versions of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do this each and every time you switch to a different release, and when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have several sites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
