To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more rapidly and this can enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

When you get a Linux shared website hosting service from us, it'll be set up on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to run any script app that needs the tool to run properly. In addition, we provide several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you will need to enable ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which needs this tool to run properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each and every 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. In case you have several sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you can define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
