To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed quicker and this can increase the general speed of your website.

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud hosting package that we offer and you can enable it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you can employ script apps which require it. You can 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 takes effect within a minute, which means that you're able to proceed and install the app that you would like right away. The very same section allows you to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, as we support a number of versions on our hi-tech cloud platform. In case you move to a release that you have never used so far, you will have to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we offer, which means that you won't experience any problems if you would like to set up and work with a script app that requires the instrument in order to function appropriately. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, so you are able to move forward with the app set up without any delays. Since we use an innovative in-house built platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to activate ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code within it.
