In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with tools such as ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you buy web software encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without a problem as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is installed 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 given script application to be set up. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more quickly and this will enhance the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the web hosting plans that we offer, so if you need it to set up and run a script app which needs it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Since you're able to change the PHP version which is active for your account in the same section, you'll have to activate 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 both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you'll be able to run both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you cannot do with many other website hosting service providers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is available with all the semi-dedicated plans that we supply, and you will not encounter any problems if you'd like to set up and use a script app which requires the software instrument so as to operate appropriately. Activating it is as easy as clicking a button inside the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all of the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, therefore you'll be able to proceed with the app set up without any delays. Because we use an innovative custom-made platform and we support many different versions of PHP at the same time, you'll need to activate ionCube any time you move to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to activate ionCube loader or even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by creating a php.ini file in an individual domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code within it.
