To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. When you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed much faster and this will boost the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux hosting service that we supply and you're able to enable it at any time with only a few clicks, so you can work with script apps which require it. You'll be able to do that from the PHP Configuration section of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it will take to activate or disable ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to proceed and install the application that you need right away. The same section allows you to change the PHP version that's active for your account, as we support a number of releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. In case you switch to a release that you have not used so far, you will need to activate ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder in order to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Due to the fact that all 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 application that requires this software tool in order to function efficiently. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Since we support a couple of releases of PHP concurrently, you will need to do that each and every time you move to a different version, but when you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of websites in the same account and they need different releases 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'll be able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account as a whole.
