In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, a lot of developers encrypt their program code with tools like ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. The latter is valid for paid applications in particular, because anyone could possibly use and modify the unprotected code without paying the required license fees. In case you acquire web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader enables you to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're usually executed a lot quicker and this can improve the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all website hosting plans which we supply, so when you need it in order to install and execute some script app that requires it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you'll be able to change the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you'll need to enable the instrument for any new version that you set. In case you are more skillful, you'll be able to use 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 entire account. Thus you're able to operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you won't be able to do with various other website hosting providers 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 will be able to use any script app which requires the tool in order to function properly. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you're able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for your account. Since we support several releases of PHP concurrently, you will need to do that every time you switch to a different version, and if you revert back to a release that you've 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 versions of PHP, you will be able to set up a php.ini file in each and every domain folder and with several lines of program code you can define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account as a whole.
