In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed more rapidly and this can enhance the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is installed on all web servers which are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, therefore whatever the shared hosting that you select during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section allows you to pick the PHP version for your account (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), which means that if you choose to switch to some other version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Because our platform is rather flexible, you may even set some other PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you'd like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team will assist you quickly.

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 needs this software tool so as to work effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you will have to do this every time you move to a different version, and if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have multiple websites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you will be able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of code you are able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
