In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. In case you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can increase the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud website hosting plan that we offer and you are able to enable it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you can take advantage of script applications that require it. You are able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you can proceed and set up the application that you need right away. The same section allows you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support several versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a version that you have not used to date, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all 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 needs the software tool so as to run efficiently. With several clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. As we support a couple of versions of PHP at the same time, you'll have to do this every time you switch to a different release, but if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple websites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you can define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
