In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this can raise the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, so regardless of the website hosting service that you get during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The same section will allow you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and in case you would like to switch to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is rather flexible, you can even set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team will be able to help you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, and you will not experience any problems if you'd like to set up and use a script app which requires the tool to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you will be able to proceed with the application set up without delay. Due to the fact that we employ an avant-garde in-house built platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code inside it.
