To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed faster and this will enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every cloud website hosting plan that we provide and you're able to enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script applications that need it. You'll be able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you are able to go ahead and install the app that you need right away. The very same section allows you to switch the PHP release that's active for your account, as we support numerous releases on our leading-edge cloud platform. In case you move to a release that you've never used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced 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 Servers

Because all 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 that needs the tool so as to function properly. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do that every time you move to a new version, and when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you can define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
