In order to avoid the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. When you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a tool named ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often find it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more rapidly and this can raise the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all hosting packages that we supply, so when you require it to install and run a script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you can change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you will have to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. When you're more skillful, you will be able to use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you're able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you can't do with numerous other web hosting service providers out there.

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 to work effectively. With several clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Because we support a couple of versions of PHP at the same time, you will need to do this each time you move to a different version, and when you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have multiple websites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you can define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
