To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed a lot faster and this will enhance the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is installed on all of the web servers that are part of our cloud website hosting platform, which means that regardless of the shared package that you get during the signup process, you can enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The very same section will allow you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so in case you decide to move to some other version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is quite flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team will be able to assist you in no time.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we offer, which means that you won't have any problems in case you'd like to install and use a script application that requires the software instrument so as to function properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, which means that you are able to move forward with the app set up without delay. As we employ a cutting-edge custom-built platform and we support a number of versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code within it.
