To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. When you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot quicker and this will boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore whatever the shared hosting plan that you select during the signup process, you'll be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complex. The very same section allows you to select the PHP version for your account (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), which means that if you decide to move to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is very flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and another status of ionCube by employing a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will help you quickly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Every single semi-dedicated server account that is generated on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you can set up any script app that requires the software tool. Then use it to launch and maintain your world wide web presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration section of the Control Panel and it will take you only a few clicks to do this. Your change will take effect immediately, so you'll be able to go ahead and install the needed script in your account. If you choose to switch the PHP version that's active for your account, you need to activate ionCube for the new version as well. Our in-house built platform also allows you to have a different PHP release for each domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you will be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
