To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. If you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more quickly and this will raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers that are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so whatever the cloud web hosting that you choose during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section allows you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you would like to switch to another version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is flexible, you can set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 support team will help you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you can use any script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader because the tool is available on all servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. In addition, we support various versions of PHP, which means that if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
