In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, as anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument known as ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed quicker and this will boost the general speed of your website.

IonCube Loader is supplied with every single Linux cloud website hosting that we offer and you'll be able to activate it anytime with just a few clicks, so you'll be able to use script applications that require it.

The change takes effect in a minute, which means that you can go ahead and install the app that you would like without delay. The same section allows you to change the PHP version which is active for your account, because we support a number of releases on our cutting-edge cloud hosting platform. If you switch to a version that you haven't used so far, you'll need to activate ionCube Loader again. Experienced users will be able to use a php.ini file in a specific domain folder to set a PHP release different from the one for the entire account or enable/disable ionCube Loader.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is provided with all the semi-dedicated servers that we offer, which means that you will not experience any kind of problems in case you would like to set up and use some script application which requires the tool in order to operate appropriately. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in less than a minute, which means that you'll be able to proceed with the application set up without delay. Since we employ a revolutionary custom platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to enable ionCube every time you switch to a version that you haven't used before. In addition, you'll have the option to enable ionCube loader or even to set a PHP version different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of code inside it.
