In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more rapidly and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each shared web hosting package that we offer and you're able to activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script applications that require it. You can 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, so you will be able to go ahead and install the application that you need right away. The same section allows you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support a variety of releases on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. If you move to a release that you haven't used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application which needs the tool in order to run properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do that each and every time you switch to a new release, but when you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
