To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. When you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this can enhance the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the website hosting packages that we provide, so when you require it to set up and run some script application that needs it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you are able to change the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for any new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you can run both new and older script applications for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with many other hosting providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is installed on all servers which are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. We also support multiple versions of PHP, which means that if you switch 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 instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
