To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed faster and this will boost the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each shared web hosting that we offer and you are able to activate it at any time with only a couple of clicks, so you will be able to take advantage of script apps that need it. You can do that from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, so you'll be able to proceed and set up the app that you'd like without delay. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, as we support several releases on our advanced cloud hosting platform. If you move to a release that you've never used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to employ any kind of script-driven application that needs ionCube Loader because the tool comes with all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different releases of PHP, so if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
