In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case 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 called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more quickly and this can raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all of the web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, so regardless of the Linux hosting package that you pick during the signup process, you can enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The same section enables you to select the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you would like to move to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is really flexible, you can set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team shall assist you very quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the Linux semi-dedicated packages that we offer, so you will not encounter any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and work with a script app that requires the software tool to operate properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, which means that you are able to move forward with the app installation without delay. Due to the fact that we employ an avant-garde in-house made platform and we support a number of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code inside it.
