In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required 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 a software instrument called ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed faster and this can raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux cloud website hosting service that we supply and you are able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script apps which require it. You can do that from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you're able to go ahead and set up the app that you would like right away. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, because we support numerous releases on our cutting-edge cloud platform. If you switch to a version that you have never used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can 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

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 requires the software tool to function properly. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do that every time you move to a new version, and when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several sites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in each 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 irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
