In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this will raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each shared website hosting plan that we supply and you will be able to enable it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script apps which require it. You are able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you're able to proceed and set up the application that you'd like without delay. The very same section allows you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support numerous versions on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. In case you switch to a release that you've never used to date, you will need to activate 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 whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app that needs this software tool to run effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support multiple versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do this each time you switch to a new release, 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 multiple websites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you're able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
