In order to stop the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encrypt their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody would be able to use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the required license fees. In case you obtain web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is installed on the website hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you'll often notice it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be installed. Due to the fact that the encoded files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed a lot faster and this can raise the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all website hosting plans which we offer, so if you require it to install and run a script app that requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to switch the PHP version that is active for your account in the same section, you will need to activate the tool for every new version which you set. In case you are more skillful, you're 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 that particular website only, without affecting the entire account. In this way you will be able to 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 numerous other web hosting suppliers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all semi-dedicated server accounts are set up on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you will be able to use any script application that requires this tool in order to work efficiently. With several clicks in the Hepsia hosting Control Panel you can activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that is currently active for the account. As we support multiple versions of PHP simultaneously, you will need to do this any time you move to a new release, but if you revert back to a version that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be active. When you have a couple of websites in the same account and they require different versions of PHP, you'll be able to set up a php.ini file in each domain folder and with several lines of code you can define both the PHP version as well as the status of ionCube no matter what is selected for the web hosting account altogether.
