To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more rapidly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, so whatever the shared hosting plan that you choose during the signup process, you will be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you will not have to do anything complex. The same section allows you to select the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and if you decide to move to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is quite flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team shall help you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which requires the software tool to run efficiently. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this every time you move to a different version, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have multiple sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you will be able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you're able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
