To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this will enhance the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is a part of all of the web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, therefore whatever the Linux shared hosting that you choose during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first web hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complex. The exact same section allows you to pick 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), so in case you decide to move to a different version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is rather flexible, you can even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you wish to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 support team will assist you very quickly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
As all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which needs the software tool in order to work efficiently. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to do this any time you switch to a new release, and if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you will be able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of code you're able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
