To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, 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, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed quicker and this will boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all of the web servers which are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore whatever the Linux web hosting that you select during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This 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 need to do anything complicated. The very same section will allow you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you would like to move to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is flexible, you can set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team will be able to assist you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all 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 requires the tool in order to function effectively. 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 is currently active for your account. Because we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do this each time you switch to a new version, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
