To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed faster and this will improve the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single shared website hosting plan that we supply and you can activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you can take advantage of script apps that require it. You will be able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you can go ahead and install the application that you would like without delay. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support several releases on our hi-tech cloud hosting platform. If you move to a release that you have never used so far, you will need to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to employ any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is available on all the servers which are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. We also support different releases of PHP, so 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 system will remember your choice, so if you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of code.
