Discover what IonCube is as well as why it’s installed on pretty much every server running PHP today.
In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the needed license fees. When you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more quickly and this can enhance the overall speed of your site.
IonCube in Shared Hosting
If you aquire a shared hosting plan
from our company, it'll be created on our in-house made cloud hosting platform where ionCube Loader is already installed, so you will not have any problems to run any script application which needs the tool to run properly. We also offer a few different releases of PHP, so if you change the version, you will have to activate ionCube again. Our platform remembers the adjustments you make, so in case you go back to the earlier release of PHP that was active for your account, ionCube Loader will already be turned on. Both the PHP version as well as the ionCube instrument can be operated through the PHP Configuration part of our Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each adjustment that you do takes literally just a click and it will take effect without delay.
IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers
IonCube Loader is available with all of the semi-dedicated plans
that we supply, and you won't have any kind of problems in case you would like to set up and work with a script application that requires the tool so as to operate properly. Activating it is as simple as clicking a single button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you are able to move forward with the application set up without delay. Since we use a hi-tech in-house built platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube any time you move to a version that you have not used before. You will also 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 creating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a few lines of program code in it.
