Learn what IonCube is and also the reasons why it’s set up on nearly every server running PHP presently.
To avoid the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the needed license fees. If you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed faster and this can boost the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Website Hosting
When you get a shared website hosting plan
from us, it'll be created on our custom-made cloud platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any problems to run any script app that requires the tool so as to function properly. In addition, we provide several different releases of PHP, which means that in case you change the version, you'll have to enable ionCube once again. Our system remembers the changes you make, and in case you go back to the previous version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be enabled. Both the PHP version and the ionCube tool can be operated from the PHP Configuration area of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Every change that you make takes literally just a single click and it takes effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
Since all of the semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application that needs this tool in order to work properly. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. Since we support several versions of PHP concurrently, you will have to do that each and every time you move to a new release, but if you revert back to a version that you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. When you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you're able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
