In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed quicker and this will raise the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore regardless of the cloud website hosting plan that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The exact same section enables you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you would like to move to another version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is really flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 technical support team shall help you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we provide, and you will not have any problems in case you'd like to set up and work with some script application that requires the software instrument in order to operate properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you can proceed with the application set up without delay. Due to the fact that we use a cutting-edge custom platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code in it.
