To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed quicker and this will increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Web Hosting

If you buy a Linux web hosting from us, it will be set up on our custom-built cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you will not have any kind of problems to manage any script application that needs the instrument to run appropriately. We also offer you several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will need to activate ionCube again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so if you switch back to the previous version of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you make takes literally just a click and it will take effect instantly.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you'll be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the tool comes with all the servers that are part of our innovative cloud hosting platform. We also support several versions of PHP, so if you move 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 example, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, and in case you move back to the earlier release of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
