In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. In case you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encrypted files and you will often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed much faster and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.

IonCube Loader is available on all the web servers that are a part of our cloud hosting platform, so irrespective of the web hosting that you pick during the signup process, you can enable it through the Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as right-clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this is your first hosting account ever, you will not need to do anything complex. The same section enables you to select the PHP version for your account (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), so in case you want to move to a different version, you just have to activate ionCube Loader for it as well. Due to the fact that our platform is really flexible, you can set some other PHP version and another status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in every domain folder. In case this is something you wish to do but you do not have much experience, our 24/7 tech support team will help you within minutes.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by making a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding several lines of program code within it.
