In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software tool named ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed quicker and this will improve the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

If you aquire a Linux shared website hosting through our company, it will be created on our in-house built cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already present, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application that needs the instrument in order to run appropriately. Furthermore, we supply several different releases of PHP, therefore if you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube again. Our platform 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. The PHP version as well as the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Any adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it takes effect at once.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

In case you aquire a semi-dedicated server package from us, you will be able to use any script-driven application which requires ionCube Loader due to the fact that the tool is available on all of the servers which are a part of our modern cloud web hosting platform. In addition, we support different versions of PHP, which means that 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 enable ionCube for that particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your decision, and in case you move back to the earlier version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more experienced users, we also provide the option to select the PHP version and if ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the entire web hosting account. This is done by placing a php.ini file in a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
