In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. When you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed faster and this will increase the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud website hosting service
that we supply and you can enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you can employ script applications which need it. You are able to do that through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you're able to proceed and set up the app that you need right away. The same section allows you to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, because we support a number of versions on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a release that you've never used to date, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you buy a semi-dedicated server
plan from us, you will be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven app that needs ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool is available on all of the servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. We also support multiple versions of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, so in case you switch back to the previous version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
