In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this will improve the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is available on all of the web servers that are part of our cloud hosting platform, so irrespective of the cloud service that you choose during the signup process, you can enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The same section will allow you to select the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that in case you want to switch to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is flexible, you can set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall assist you in no time.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app which needs this software tool so as to work efficiently. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do that each time you move to a different version, and when you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
