In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary 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 named ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Web Hosting

If you buy a web hosting plan through us, it will be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any kind of problems to run any script app which needs the tool so as to function properly. In addition, we provide several different releases of PHP, so if you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, which means that in case you go back to the earlier release of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it'll take effect right away.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you get a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to take advantage of any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader as the software tool is available on all the servers that are a part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. We also support several releases of PHP, and if you switch from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for example, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, so in case you switch back to the earlier release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
