In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted 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 allows you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more rapidly and this can raise the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each Linux shared hosting that we provide and you're able to activate it anytime with only a couple of clicks, so you will be able to employ script applications that need it. You can do that through the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a single button. The change will take effect within a minute, therefore you're able to proceed and set up the app that you would like without delay. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP version that is active for your account, as we support several releases on our leading-edge cloud platform. If you move to a version that you have never used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application which needs the software tool to run efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Since we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you'll have to do that each and every time you switch to a new version, and if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
