In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot quicker and this can increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

When you purchase a Linux shared website hosting package from our company, it'll be created on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any kind of problems to manage any script application which needs the tool so as to function appropriately. We also provide several different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you go back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get a semi-dedicated server package from us, you can employ any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is available on all the servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support several releases of PHP, therefore if you move 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 activate ionCube for this particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, so in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
