In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. If you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more rapidly and this will improve the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single cloud web hosting that we provide and you can enable it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to use script applications which need it. You are able to do this through the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, which means that you can proceed and set up the application that you'd like right away. The same section allows you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, as we support several versions on our advanced cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a version that you haven't used so far, you will have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that requires this tool in order to function efficiently. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each and every time you move to a new release, but when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have a couple of sites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you'll be able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
