To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux shared hosting that we offer and you are able to enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to work with script apps which need it. You can do this from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect within a minute, so you're able to proceed and install the app that you would like right away. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support a variety of releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. If you move to a release that you've never used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you aquire a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can take advantage of any kind of script-driven app that requires ionCube Loader since the software tool is available on all the servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. In addition, we support different versions of PHP, which means that 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 example, you can activate ionCube for that particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, so if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with several lines of program code.
