In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. If you get web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot faster and this can improve the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Website Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every website hosting that we offer and you will be able to enable it at any time with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to use script apps that require it. You'll be able to do that through the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, which means that you are able to go ahead and set up the app that you would like right away. The very same section allows you to change the PHP release that's active for your account, because we support several versions on our advanced cloud platform. If you switch to a release that you have never used so far, you'll have to enable ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP version different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from us, you'll be able to employ any kind of script-driven app which needs ionCube Loader since the tool comes with all servers that are a part of our advanced cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support various 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 only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your decision, and if you switch back to the earlier version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to select the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of code.
