In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed quicker and this can improve the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

If you obtain a cloud plan through us, it will be set up on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application that requires the instrument so as to function appropriately. Furthermore, we provide a few different releases of PHP, therefore in case you switch the version, you'll need to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that when you move back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a single click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the semi-dedicated plans that we supply, which means that you will not encounter any problems in case you would like to set up and work with some script application which requires the tool so as to operate properly. Activating it is as easy as clicking a single button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, so you are able to move forward with the application installation without delay. Since we use an avant-garde in-house made platform and we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to enable ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't 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 creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code in it.
