To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this can improve the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each cloud plan that we supply and you will be able to enable it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to take advantage of script applications that require it. You are able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you will be able to proceed and install the app that you need without delay. The very same section allows you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support multiple releases on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you have never used to date, you will need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all 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 app that requires this software tool in order to work efficiently. With several clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your 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 version, but if you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple websites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you will be able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of code you are able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
