In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this will boost the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers that are part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore irrespective of the shared hosting that you pick during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it through the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section enables you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so in case you would like to move to a different version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. As our platform is really 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 don't have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team shall help you within minutes.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Because all 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 application which requires the software tool in order to run effectively. 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. Since we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do that each time you switch to a different release, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of sites in the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you can define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
