In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the necessary license fees. In case you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed more quickly and this will boost the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is supplied with each shared website hosting that we supply and you will be able to enable it anytime with only a few clicks, so you'll be able to use script apps that need it. You can do this from the PHP Configuration area of your Hepsia Control Panel and all it'll take to enable or deactivate ionCube is to click a button. The change takes effect within a minute, which means that you will be able to go ahead and set up the application that you'd like without delay. The exact same section allows you to switch the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support numerous versions on our leading-edge cloud hosting platform. If you move to a version that you have never used so far, you will have to enable ionCube Loader again. More advanced users can use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder so as to set a PHP version different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.

IonCube Loader is provided with all semi-dedicated servers that we offer, so you will not experience any problems if you'd like to install and work with a script application that requires the instrument to operate appropriately.
