In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the required license fees. If you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is a part of the hosting server. This loader allows you to run encrypted files and you will often see it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. Because the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed quicker and this will enhance the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all cloud hosting plans which we supply, so when you need it to install and execute some script application which needs it, you can activate it with a click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you can switch the PHP version that is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for each new version which you set. When you are more experienced, you're able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set both the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for that particular site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with lots of other hosting suppliers 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 application which needs the software tool to function 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 the account. Because we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to do this each time you move to a new release, and when you revert back to a release that you have already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have several websites inside the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you can 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 as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
