To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed faster and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud web hosting that we offer and you can activate it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you will be able to employ script apps which need it. You're able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the app that you'd like right away. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our leading-edge cloud platform. If you move to a release that you've never used to date, you will 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 entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application which needs this tool in order to run effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do this each and every time you switch to a new release, and if you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have several websites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
