Learn what IonCube is and also the reason why it’s set up on virtually every server running PHP nowadays.
To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. When you purchase web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument named ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are normally executed more quickly and this will increase the general speed of your website.
IonCube in Cloud Hosting
If you aquire a cloud hosting plan
through us, it'll be created on our custom cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you won't have any kind of problems to run any script application that requires the tool in order to run properly. We also offer you several different releases of PHP, so in case you switch the version, you will need to enable ionCube again. Our system remembers the changes you make, so when you switch back to the earlier version of PHP which was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be activated. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be managed through the PHP Configuration section of our Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a single click and it will take effect at once.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
As all the semi-dedicated server
accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that needs this software tool to work efficiently. With a couple of clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. As we support a couple of versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do this every time you switch to a new release, and when you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of sites inside the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you can set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you can define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
