To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is present on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more quickly and this can boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is a part of all of the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, so regardless of the Linux cloud hosting that you get during the signup process, you'll be able to activate it through your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as easy as clicking an On/Off button in the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The same section enables you to pick the PHP release for your account (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), so if you would like to switch to some other version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is rather flexible, you may even set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you would like to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 support team will assist you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting that we supply, and you won't experience any kind of problems in case you would like to set up and work with some script app that requires the software tool so as to function appropriately.

You will also have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of code within it.
