In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without having to pay the necessary license fees. In case you get web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed faster and this can raise the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the website hosting plans that we supply, so any time you need it to set up and run some script application that requires it, you can activate it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to enable the tool for every new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you'll be able to employ a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the entire account. This way you're able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - something that you won't be able to do with lots of other website hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all of the semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app which needs this tool so as to function properly. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. As we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do that every time you switch to a new release, and if you revert back to a release which you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of websites inside the same account and they need different versions of PHP, you are able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with several lines of code you are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
