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, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more quickly and this will improve the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single website hosting service that we provide and you can activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to work with script applications which need it. You'll be able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, so you can go ahead and set up the application that you need without delay. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support multiple releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a release that you haven't used to date, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that 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 application that needs this software tool to work properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do that every time you move to a new release, 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 in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you will be able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
