To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed much faster and this can raise the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the website hosting packages which we supply, so every time you require it to install and execute a script app that requires it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you will have to activate the tool for every new version which you set. When you're more experienced, you will be able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. This way you are able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple websites inside the same account - something that you won't be able to do with lots of other web hosting suppliers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to use any kind of script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is available on all the servers that are a part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. In addition, we support various releases of PHP, and 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 activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, so in case you move back to the previous release of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of code.
