To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, as anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed much faster and this will improve the overall speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
When you get a cloud hosting through us, it'll be created on our custom cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already set up, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app which requires the tool to run properly. In addition, we supply several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you go back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be managed through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect immediately.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
IonCube Loader is available with all semi-dedicated hosting that we provide, which means that you will not experience any kind of problems if you would like to install and use a script app which requires the tool to operate properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change shall take effect in a minute, so you can move forward with the application set up without delay. For the reason that we employ a hi-tech tailor-made platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code inside it.
