To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. In case you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot quicker and this will enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux cloud package that we provide and you'll be able to activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you can work with script apps which need it. You are able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you'll be able to proceed and set up the application that you would like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support a variety of releases on our advanced cloud platform. In case you move to a version that you have not used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced 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

Because all 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 application that needs this software tool to run efficiently. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Because we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do this each and every time you switch to a different release, and when you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have several sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
