To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. When you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software 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 see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can increase the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared hosting packages which we provide, so any time you need it in order to set up and run some script app that needs it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you are able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the tool for every new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you will be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you can manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with a lot of other web hosting providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you get a semi-dedicated server plan from us, you'll be able to employ any script-driven app which requires ionCube Loader because the software tool comes with all of the servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform. In addition, we support different releases of PHP, and 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 instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain without altering the settings for the whole web hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of code.
