To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot quicker and this can increase the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud website hosting package that we offer and you're able to activate it anytime with only a few clicks, so you'll be able to employ script apps that need it. You will be able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, which means that you're able to go ahead and set up the application that you'd like right away. The very same section allows you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support multiple versions on our leading-edge cloud platform. In case you switch to a version that you've never used so far, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app which requires the software tool so as to work properly. With several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Since we support a couple of releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do this each and every time you move to a new version, but when you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require 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 are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
