To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available on all of the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, so whatever the cloud website hosting plan that you get during the signup process, you will be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section allows you to select the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that in case you want to move to a different version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. As our platform is flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team shall assist you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account that's set up on our cutting-edge cloud web hosting platform comes with ionCube Loader support, so you'll be able to install any kind of script app that requires the software tool. Then employ it in order to launch and maintain your web presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it'll take you no more than a couple of clicks to do this. Your change will take effect immediately, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the needed script inside your account. If you decide to change the PHP version that's active for the account, you will have to enable ionCube for the new version too. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in each domain folder. In the same way, you can enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
