In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, numerous developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. When you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often notice it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be installed. As the encoded files are already precompiled, they are generally executed more quickly and this will increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the shared web hosting plans which we supply, so if you require it in order to set up and run some script application which requires it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you can switch the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you'll need to activate the tool for any new version that you set. In case you are more skillful, you'll be able to employ 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. Thus you will be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - something that you won't be able to do with many other hosting service providers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you shall be able to use any script application that needs the software tool in order to run efficiently. With several clicks in your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. Since we support a couple of releases of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this each and every time you move to a different release, and if you revert back to a version which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. In case you have several websites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with a couple of lines of code you'll be able to define both the PHP version and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account altogether.
