To avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you buy web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more quickly and this can increase the general speed of your site.
IonCube in Hosting
If you obtain a hosting through our company, it'll be set up on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to manage any script application which requires the instrument to function properly. We also offer several different versions of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you will have to activate ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and when you go back to the previous release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia web hosting Control Panel. Any change that you make takes literally just a click and it'll take effect instantly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
In case you buy a semi-dedicated server plan from our company, you'll be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader since the tool is installed on all servers that are part of our advanced cloud hosting platform. Furthermore, we support different versions of PHP, therefore if you switch from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can enable ionCube for this particular release with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our system will remember your choice, and in case you switch back to the previous version of PHP, the instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also offer the option to choose the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a specific domain name without altering the settings for the entire hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of program code.
