To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. When you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed faster and this will increase the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

When you get a cloud plan through us, it will be created on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script application that needs the tool in order to run appropriately. We also provide a few different versions of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every change that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you will be able to take advantage of any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool comes with all the servers that are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support multiple versions of PHP, so if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for that particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, so in case you switch back to the previous version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
