To stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed much faster and this can boost the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the cloud hosting plans that we supply, so every time you require it to install and run a script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to change the PHP release that is active for your account from the same section, you will have to activate the tool for every new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you're able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites inside the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with lots of other web hosting providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can use any kind of script-driven app that requires ionCube Loader as the tool is available on all servers that are a part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support multiple releases of PHP, and if you move 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 instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a couple of lines of code.
