To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed quicker and this can boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux shared hosting package that we supply and you can enable it anytime with only a few clicks, so you can work with script apps that require it. You can do that through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you're able to proceed and install the app that you would like right away. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support several releases on our hi-tech cloud platform. If you move to a release that you have not used to date, you will have to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

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