In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this will boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the shared hosting packages that we supply, so every time you need it to install and execute a script app that needs it, you can activate it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you're able to switch the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you will need to activate the tool for each new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you can use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you are able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with a lot of other web hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to employ any script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader as the software tool comes with all the servers which are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. We also support different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch 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 this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
