To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all of the web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that whatever the cloud plan that you get during the signup process, you can enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complicated. The very same section allows you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you would like to switch to some other version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is really flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you want to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team will assist you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you get a semi-dedicated server package from us, you can employ any kind of script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader since the software tool is installed on all servers which are part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. In addition, we support different releases of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
