To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more quickly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers which are part of our cloud web hosting platform, so irrespective of the Linux shared website hosting that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The exact same section will allow you to select the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that in case you choose to move to a different version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is flexible, you can set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team will be able to assist you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account that is set up on our outstanding cloud hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, and you'll be able to set up any script app which requires the software tool. Then employ it to launch and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it'll take you only a couple of clicks to do that. Your change will take effect without delay, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, you'll need to enable ionCube for the new version too. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
