To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed much faster and this will enhance the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every cloud website hosting that we provide and you can enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to work with script apps that need it. You will be able to do this from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to activate or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect in a minute, therefore you are able to proceed and install the application that you'd like right away. The exact same section allows you to change the PHP release which is active for your account, as we support multiple versions on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. If you move to a release that you've never used to date, you will have to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can 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
Because all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application which needs this tool to run effectively. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support multiple releases of PHP at the same time, you will have to do that any time you move to a different version, and when you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have several websites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you will be able to create a php.ini file in each domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you can define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
