To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed much faster and this will improve the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud web hosting that we supply and you can enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to work with script applications which require it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, which means that you can go ahead and install the application that you'd like without delay. The same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that's active for your account, as we support a number of versions on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. If you move to a version that you've never used to date, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app that requires this tool so as to run efficiently. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that each and every time you move to a different release, but if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different releases 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 version and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
