In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their program code with instruments such as 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. When you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed a lot quicker and this will improve the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you aquire a cloud hosting from us, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to run any script application that needs the instrument in order to function appropriately. Furthermore, we supply several different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so when you move back to the previous release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can take advantage of any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is installed on all of the servers that are a part of our advanced cloud web hosting platform. Furthermore, we support multiple versions of PHP, so if you move 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 example, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so if you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of code.
