In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more rapidly and this will raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all of the web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, which means that whatever the Linux cloud web hosting package that you get during the signup process, you can enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The very same section allows you to choose the PHP version for your account (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), and in case you decide to switch to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is rather flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you want to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 technical support team shall assist you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app which requires the tool to function effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Since we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that any time you switch to a new version, and if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you can define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
