In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more quickly and this can enhance the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all cloud website hosting packages that we provide, so every time you need it to install and execute some script application that needs it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you'll be able to change the PHP release that's active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the tool for each new version which you set. If you're more experienced, you can employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - something that you can't do with lots of other hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can employ any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the software tool is installed on all servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support different releases of PHP, so if you switch from PHP 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, for instance, you can enable ionCube for that particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so if you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
