In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this can increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all web servers that are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so irrespective of the hosting service that you select during the signup process, you can enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The same section enables you to pick the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so in case you want to move to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is really flexible, you can set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall help you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that needs the tool so as to work effectively. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will need to do that every time you move 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. If you have multiple sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
