In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot faster and this will improve the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single shared website hosting plan that we supply and you can enable it anytime with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to work with script applications which require it. You'll be able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you will be able to proceed and set up the app that you would like without delay. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support multiple releases on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a version that you have not used to date, you will need to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all of 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 which needs this software tool to run effectively. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Since we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that any time you move to a new release, but if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
