To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot faster and this will raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

If you purchase a Linux shared hosting through us, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which requires the tool to function appropriately. We also offer a few different releases of PHP, which means that if you change the version, you need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so if you move back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any script-driven app that needs ionCube Loader since the tool is available on all the servers that are part of our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support several versions of PHP, therefore 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 example, you can enable ionCube for that particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so if you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the software tool 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 specific domain without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a few lines of code.
