In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed quicker and this will increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that whatever the cloud web hosting that you select during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The same section enables you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and if you would like to switch to another version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is really flexible, you can set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you'd like to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 technical support team will help you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which needs the software tool so as to function efficiently. 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. Because we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each time you move to a new release, 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 activated. In case you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
