To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed much faster and this will improve the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all of the web servers which are part of our cloud hosting platform, so whatever the Linux cloud website hosting package that you get during the signup process, you will be able to activate it through the 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 web hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section allows you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5), which means that in case you choose to switch to a different version, you just need to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Because our platform is quite flexible, you can even set a different PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. If this is something you want to do but you don't have much experience, our 24/7 support team will help you in no time.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Every single semi-dedicated server account which is generated on our outstanding cloud web hosting platform has ionCube Loader support, so you will be able to set up any kind of script application that requires the software tool. Then use it to start and maintain your online presence. You can activate ionCube from the PHP Configuration area of the Control Panel and it will take you just a couple of clicks to do that. Your change will take effect instantly, so you're able to go ahead and set up the necessary script in your account. If you decide to switch the PHP version that's active for the account, you should activate ionCube for the new release as well. Our custom-built platform also allows you to have a different PHP version for each and every domain or subdomain, which is done with a php.ini file in every domain folder. In the same way, you'll be able to enable/disable ionCube Loader for each individual website hosted in your semi-dedicated account.
