In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often see it as one of the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot quicker and this can enhance the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
IonCube Loader is supplied with each and every Linux cloud package that we supply and you are able to activate it at any time with just a few clicks, so you can use script applications which require it. You're able to do this from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change will take effect in a minute, so you're able to proceed and install the app that you need right away. The very same section will allow you to switch the PHP release that is active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our advanced cloud platform. If you switch to a release that you have never used so far, you'll have to activate ionCube Loader once again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a particular domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
In case you get a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to employ any kind of script-driven app that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool is available on all servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support different releases of PHP, which means that if you switch from PHP 4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2, for instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This can be done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
