In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot 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, as anybody would be able to use and modify the unprotected code without paying the necessary license fees. If you buy web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you can use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is present on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to execute encoded files and you'll often see it on the list of prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. Because the encoded files are already precompiled, they're normally executed much faster and this will increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all cloud hosting packages that we supply, so any time you require it in order to set up and run some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click inside the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. As you can switch the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to activate the instrument for each new version that you set. When you are more skillful, you will be able to take advantage of a php.ini file in a domain or subdomain folder and set the PHP version and the status of ionCube Loader for this particular site only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - a thing that you will not be able to do with various other hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

As all of the 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 application that needs this software tool in order to function efficiently. With several clicks in your Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version which is currently active for your account. Since we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you will have to do this each time you move to a new version, but when you revert back to a release which you have already used, our system will remember your choice and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have a couple of websites in the same account and they require different releases of PHP, you are able to set up 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 plus the status of ionCube irrespective of what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
