In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this will increase the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is installed on all the web servers which are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore regardless of the Linux shared website hosting package
that you get during the signup process, you can enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as right-clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first website hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The very same section enables you to choose the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), so if you would like to switch to another version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is flexible, you may even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 support team shall help you in no time.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
Since all the semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script app that requires the tool to work properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this any time you switch to a different version, and if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have several sites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
