In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this will increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all of the web servers that are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore whatever the Linux shared hosting that you choose during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complicated. The exact same section allows you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and in case you want to move to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is very flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team will help you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app which requires the tool in order to function efficiently. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. As we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do that each and every time you switch to a different version, and if you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
