To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot faster and this can enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the shared hosting plans which we provide, so if you need it to install and execute a script application that needs it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you'll be able to switch the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the tool for every new version that you set. When you are more skillful, you will be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you'll be able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you cannot do with various other website hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you can employ any script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all servers which are part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. We also support various releases of PHP, which means that 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 enable ionCube for that particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
