In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required 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 an instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot faster and this can raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all cloud hosting plans that we offer, so any time you need it in order to set up and execute a script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to switch the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for any new version that you set. When you're more experienced, you'll be able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. This way you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you can't do with many other web hosting suppliers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader because the software tool is installed on all servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. We also support multiple releases of PHP, therefore if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
