In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot faster and this will boost the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud website hosting package that we offer and you are able to enable it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you can take advantage of script applications which need it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, therefore you'll be able to proceed and set up the application that you'd like without delay. The very same section allows you to change the PHP release that's active for your account, as we support multiple releases on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. If you move to a version that you have never used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to employ any kind of script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all servers that are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. We also support multiple releases of PHP, and if you move from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and in case you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
