In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this will raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

If you get a Linux website hosting through us, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script application which requires the tool to function appropriately. Furthermore, we offer you a few different versions of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and in case you move back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version and the ionCube tool can be managed from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a mouse-click and it takes effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to use any script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader due to the fact that the software tool is installed on all of the servers that are a part of our modern cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support several releases of PHP, so 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 enable ionCube for this particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, so in case you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file inside a domain folder with a few lines of code.
