To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed much faster and this can increase the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux web hosting that we offer and you're able to activate it at any time with only a few clicks, so you'll be able to take advantage of script applications that require it. You are able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you'll be able to go ahead and set up the app that you would like right away. The very same section will allow you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support several versions on our cutting-edge cloud platform. If you move to a version that you haven't used so far, you will have to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from us, you can employ any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader since the tool is installed on all of the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. We also support multiple releases of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and if you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code.
