In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encrypt their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you acquire web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as a software instrument known as ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encoded files and you will often see it on the list of prerequisites for a particular script app to be set up. Due to the fact that the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed much faster and this can increase the general speed of your website.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all the shared web hosting packages that we supply, so when you require it in order to set up and execute some script application that needs it, you can enable it with a click in the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to change the PHP release that is active for your account from the same section, you need to activate the instrument for any new version which you set. When you are more skillful, you will be able to 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 site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you are able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you can't do with lots of other hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As 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 properly. With several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for the account. Since we support several versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to do that each time you move to a new version, and when you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have several sites in the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you can create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you are able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the website hosting account as a whole.
