To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of 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 would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot faster and this can enhance the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Hosting
When you buy a Linux hosting
through us, it will be created on our custom-made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any problems to run any script app which requires the instrument so as to function appropriately. In addition, we offer you several different versions of PHP, so in case you change the version, you'll need to activate ionCube once again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so when you go back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version and the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each change that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect instantly.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting
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 that requires ionCube Loader for the reason that the software tool comes with all servers which are part of our state-of-the-art cloud website hosting platform. We also support multiple releases of PHP, so if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for example, you can activate ionCube for this particular version with only a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and if you move back to the previous release of PHP, the tool will already be active. For more tech-savvy 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 website hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with several lines of program code.
