In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can boost the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud website hosting plan that we supply and you are able to activate it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you can employ script apps which require it. You will be able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, so you can go ahead and set up the app that you would like right away. The very same section allows you to change the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a release that you have not used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

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 this software tool to work effectively. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support multiple releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each time you move to a different release, and when you revert back to a version which you've 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 need different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
