To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more quickly and this will boost the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux cloud website hosting package that we offer and you are able to activate it anytime with only a few clicks, so you'll be able to employ script applications that require it. You will be able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you're able to go ahead and set up the application that you would like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to change the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support multiple versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you move to a version that you've never used to date, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to employ any kind of script-driven application which needs ionCube Loader since the software tool comes with all of the servers which are part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support different 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 instance, you can enable ionCube for that particular version with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of code.
