In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more quickly and this will improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud website hosting that we supply and you are able to activate it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you can employ script applications that require it. You are able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you're able to proceed and set up the application that you would like without delay. The same section allows you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our hi-tech cloud platform. If you switch to a release that you've never used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order 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 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 app that requires this software tool to run effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. As we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do that any time you move to a new release, but 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 websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
