In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more rapidly and this can increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every web hosting that we provide and you will be able to enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to take advantage of script apps that need it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you're able to proceed and set up the application that you'd like without delay. The very same section allows you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support several versions on our state-of-the-art cloud platform. If you move to a release that you have never used to date, you will have to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated servers that we supply, which means that you won't experience any problems in case you would like to set up and work with a script app which requires the instrument in order to function appropriately. Activating it is as simple as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, so you will be able to move forward with the app installation without delay. Because we use an avant-garde tailor-made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code inside it.
