In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. When you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often find it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Since the encoded files are already precompiled, they are usually executed quicker and this will boost the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the cloud web hosting plans that we provide, so every time you require it to set up and execute some script application which needs it, you can activate it with a click inside the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you can switch the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you need to enable the instrument for any new version that you set. If you're more skillful, you will 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 website only, without affecting the entire account. Thus you are able to run both new and older script applications for multiple websites in the same account - something that you cannot do with lots of other web hosting suppliers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Due to the fact that all semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script app that requires the software tool in order to run properly. With just a few clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you'll be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. As we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you'll need to do that every time you move to a different version, but when 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 multiple sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you'll be able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
