To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more rapidly and this will increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all the web servers that are part of our cloud web hosting platform, so irrespective of the Linux shared web hosting package that you select during the signup process, you will be able to enable it from your Hepsia Control Panel. The process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button from the Advanced section, so even if this is your first web hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complicated. The very same section allows you to choose the PHP version 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), and in case you choose to switch to another version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Due to the fact that our platform is rather flexible, you can even set another PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. If this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 support team will assist you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that needs the tool to work effectively. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for your account. Since we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do that any time you move to a different version, but when you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you will be able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
