To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. If you obtain web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed quicker and this can improve the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Web Hosting
When you buy a web hosting
through us, it'll be set up on our in-house made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to manage any script app which requires the instrument to function properly. Furthermore, we offer several different releases of PHP, therefore if you switch the version, you'll need to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments 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 and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you make takes literally just a single click and it will take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you get a semi-dedicated server
plan from our company, you can take advantage of any script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader as the tool comes with all servers which are a part of our revolutionary cloud hosting platform. We also support various releases of PHP, which means that if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can enable ionCube for this particular version with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, and if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software tool will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to choose the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file inside a domain folder with several lines of program code.
