To prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encode their program code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, because anybody would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without having to pay the necessary license fees. If you get web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as an instrument called ionCube Loader is available on the website hosting server. This loader enables you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a certain script app to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are usually executed more quickly and this will increase the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all web hosting plans which we offer, so every time you require it in order to install and run a script application that needs it, you can enable it with a click from the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. As you're able to change the PHP release which is active for your account in the same section, you will need to activate the tool for every new version that you set. If you are more experienced, 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 this particular site only, without affecting the whole account. In this way you can operate both new and older script apps for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you will not be able to do with numerous other website hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Hosting

Due to the fact that 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 requires the tool so as to run effectively. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia website hosting Control Panel you are able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. As we support a couple of releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do this every time you switch to a new version, but if you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. If you have several 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 code you're able to define both the PHP release and the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
