To prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anybody could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case 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 a part of the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often find it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this will boost the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the shared website hosting packages which we offer, so any time you need it to set up and execute some script app which needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will have to activate the tool for each new version that you set. When you're more skillful, you can employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you are able to manage both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with numerous other hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

As all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script app that requires this tool so as to run properly. With several clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Because we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you will have to do that any time you switch to a different release, and when you revert back to a version which you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have several websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP release plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
