In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. When you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more quickly and this will improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all of the web servers which are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so whatever the shared plan that you select during the signup process, you will be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complicated. The exact same section will allow you to select the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you choose to move to some other version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 technical support team will assist you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can take advantage of any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is installed on all servers which are a part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. In addition, we support multiple versions of PHP, therefore if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, and in case you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
