To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you purchase 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 present on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this can improve the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all the web servers which are part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore whatever the Linux cloud hosting that you get during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The same section enables you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that if you want to switch to some other version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is quite flexible, you can even set another PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team will help you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated packages that we provide, so you won't have any problems if you'd like to install and use a script application that requires the tool in order to operate appropriately. Activating it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, which means that you'll be able to move forward with the application installation without any delays. Due to the fact that we employ a hi-tech in-house built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll 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 an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code within it.
