To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to 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 required license fees. If you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can improve the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, so regardless of the Linux cloud hosting that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't have 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, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), so if you choose to switch to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is quite flexible, you can set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team shall help you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Since all the 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 which requires the tool in order to function properly. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Since we support multiple versions of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that any time you move to a different version, and 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 several websites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
