To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. When you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this will raise the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers which are a part of our cloud website hosting platform, so regardless of the Linux cloud hosting that you choose during the signup process, you will be able to enable it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The exact same section allows you to choose the PHP version for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), and if you choose to move to another version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is very flexible, you can set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you don't have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will assist you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app that requires the software tool so as to function efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. As we support a couple of releases of PHP concurrently, you'll have to do this each and every time you move to a new release, but if you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have multiple sites inside 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 a couple of lines of code you will be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
