To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed much faster and this can raise the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux shared website hosting that we supply and you are able to enable it at any time with just a couple of clicks, so you'll be able to employ script applications which require it. You're able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a single button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you can proceed and set up the app that you would like without delay. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP release which is active for your account, because we support several versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you have never used so far, you'll need to enable ionCube Loader again. Experienced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you obtain a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you can take advantage of any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool is available on all servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud web hosting platform. We also support different releases of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so in case you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the tool 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 name without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This can be done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with a few lines of code.
