In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed faster and this will increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux shared web hosting package that we offer and you are able to enable it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to employ script apps which require it. You are able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you can proceed and install the app that you would like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support a number of versions on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. If you move to a version that you've never used so far, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you'll be able to employ any script-driven app that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all servers that are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. In addition, we support multiple versions of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for instance, you can activate ionCube for this particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
