In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you purchase web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more quickly and this can improve the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Hosting
When you get a hosting through our company, it will be created on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script app that needs the tool in order to run properly. We also offer you a few different versions of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you'll have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the changes you make, and in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP which 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 web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you do takes literally just a click and it takes effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you purchase a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you can employ any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader because the tool is available on all servers which are a part of our cutting-edge cloud website hosting platform. Furthermore, we support various versions of PHP, therefore 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 that particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so in case you switch back to the previous release of PHP, the software instrument 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 particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire website hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of program code.
