To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed faster and this will enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

When you purchase a Linux website hosting from our company, it'll be created on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application that requires the instrument in order to run properly. We also offer you several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will have to enable ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so when you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to use any script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is available on all of the servers that are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. In addition, we support multiple versions of PHP, therefore if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click from 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 tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of code.
