In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. When you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed much faster and this will boost the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you aquire a shared website hosting plan through us, it'll be set up on our tailor-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script app which requires the tool in order to run appropriately. In addition, we provide a few different versions of PHP, which means that if you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, so when you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can take advantage of any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool comes with all servers that are a part of our modern cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also provide the option to pick the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a few lines of program code.
