To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. When you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed much faster and this will improve the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the hosting plans that we provide, so when you need it in order to set up and run a script application which requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you need to activate the instrument for each new version that you set. In case you are more skillful, you'll be able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - a thing that you can't do with various other hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is set up on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform includes ionCube Loader support, and you will be able to install any script app that needs the tool. Then employ it to launch and maintain your web presence. You can enable ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of your Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do this. The change takes effect without delay, so you are able to proceed and set up the necessary script in your account. If you'd like to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, you should activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-made platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, that is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you're able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
