To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this can raise the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is a part of all web servers which are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that regardless of the Linux cloud package that you get during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be 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), and if you want to switch to a different version, you only have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Since our platform is quite flexible, you can set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team shall assist you very quickly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all Linux semi-dedicated hosting packages that we supply, which means that you will not have any problems if you'd like to set up and work with some script application which requires the software instrument so as to function properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in less than a minute, so you can proceed with the application installation without any delays. Due to the fact that we use a hi-tech custom platform and we support a number of versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code within it.
