To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more rapidly and this will enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

If you obtain a Linux shared web hosting service from our company, it'll be created on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to run any script application which needs the instrument so as to run appropriately. We also provide several different releases of PHP, therefore in case you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, which means that when you move back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. The PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect without delay.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated services that we provide, and you will not encounter any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and use a script app that requires the software instrument so as to function appropriately. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, so you're able to proceed with the app set up without delay. Since we use a revolutionary tailor-made platform and we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you will have to activate ionCube every time you switch to a version that you have not used before. In addition, you'll 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 making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code in it.
