In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed much faster and this will enhance the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every shared web hosting that we supply and you can activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script applications which need it. You are able to do this through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you can proceed and install the application that you'd like without delay. The same section allows you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support a number of versions on our cutting-edge cloud platform. If you switch to a release that you have never used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that requires this tool to work effectively. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will need to do that each time you move to a new version, but if you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have a couple of sites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
