In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you will often notice it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed a lot faster and this can increase the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Web Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each shared web hosting package that we offer and you'll be able to enable it anytime with just a couple of clicks, so you can use script applications that require it. You're able to do that from the PHP Configuration area of the Hepsia Control Panel and all it takes to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and set up the app that you'd like right away. The exact same section will allow you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support several releases on our state-of-the-art cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used so far, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the whole account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is provided with all the semi-dedicated packages that we supply, which means that you will not experience any kind of problems if you'd like to install and use some script application that requires the tool to function appropriately. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, which means that you are able to proceed with the application set up without delay. Due to the fact that we employ a cutting-edge in-house made platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. You will also have the option to activate ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code in it.
