To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed a lot quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all cloud hosting packages that we offer, so if you require it in order to set up and execute a script app that needs it, you can activate it with a single click in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to change the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you will have to enable the tool for each new version which you set. When you are more skillful, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the whole account. This way you're able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you can't do with lots of other website hosting providers out there.

If you aquire a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to employ any kind of script-driven app that needs ionCube Loader since the tool is available on all servers that are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
