In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed a lot faster and this can improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud web hosting that we provide and you'll be able to enable it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you can take advantage of script apps which need it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you're able to go ahead and install the app that you would like right away. The same section allows you to change the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support a variety of versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a version that you have never used to date, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer, and you will not experience any problems in case you would like to install and use a script app which requires the instrument so as to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you can proceed with the application set up without any delays. Due to the fact that we use a hi-tech custom platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code in it.
