In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed much faster and this can improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all the web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, so irrespective of the cloud website hosting that you choose during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website 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 if you would like to move to some other version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is quite flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will be able to help you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all of the 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 which requires the software tool in order to function effectively. With several clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Because we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do that every time you move to a different release, but when you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in every single 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 irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
