To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this can boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers which are part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore regardless of the Linux cloud web hosting that you pick during the signup process, you will be able to enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The same section allows you to pick the PHP release 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 if you want to move to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is flexible, you may even set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team will be able to help you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Because all of 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 needs the software tool in order to work efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Because we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this each and every time you switch to a different release, and if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. If you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you are able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
