In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a lot of developers encode 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, as anyone could possibly use and modify the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. If you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument called ionCube Loader is present on the hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a certain script application to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed more rapidly and this can enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all shared hosting packages that we supply, so every time you require it in order to install and execute a script application that needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you can change the PHP version that's active for your account in the same section, you'll have to enable the instrument for any new version that you set. When you're more skillful, you can use a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. This way you're able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - something that you cannot do with many other website hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Since all of the 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 app which requires the tool to run efficiently. With a couple of clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. As we support a couple of releases of PHP at the same time, you will need to do that each time you switch to a different version, 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 activated. When you have several sites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you are able to set up a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of program code you can define both the PHP release as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
