To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot faster and this will raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers which are part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that irrespective of the Linux shared hosting that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The same section will allow you to pick the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so in case you decide to move to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is quite flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will be able to help you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all of the 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 which needs the tool to run properly. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Since we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this each time you move to a new version, but if you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of websites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you can define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
