In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. If you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more quickly and this will enhance the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
IonCube Loader is a part of all of the web servers that are a part of our cloud hosting platform, therefore irrespective of the shared hosting that you select during the signup process, you can activate it from the Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you won't need to do anything complicated. The very same section will allow you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that in case you choose to move to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is flexible, you can set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you need to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 technical support team will assist you within minutes.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you obtain a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to employ any script-driven application that needs ionCube Loader since the tool is available on all the servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. In addition, we support several releases of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for that particular version with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with a few lines of code.
