In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this can increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you obtain a cloud hosting plan from us, it will be created on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app that needs the tool to run appropriately. In addition, we provide several different versions of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated plans that we supply, so you won't have any kind of problems if you would like to set up and work with a script application which requires the software instrument so as to function appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, so you're able to move forward with the application set up without any delays. For the reason that we use an avant-garde in-house built platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code within it.
