In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more quickly and this can increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

When you buy a cloud web hosting through us, it will be created on our tailor-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script app which requires the tool in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide a few different versions of PHP, so if you change the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, and when you go back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect immediately.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application which needs the software tool in order to function properly. With several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Since we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each and every time you switch to a new version, and when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of websites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you can define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
