In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script applications, a number of developers encode their program code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder in order to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, since anyone could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. If you acquire web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without a problem as long as a tool called ionCube Loader is installed on the web hosting server. This loader makes it possible to run encrypted files and you'll often notice it on the list of prerequisites for a given script app to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're ordinarily executed more rapidly and this can raise the overall speed of your website.

IonCube in Website Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all of the website hosting packages that we supply, so every time you require it to set up and run a script app that needs it, you can enable it with a click inside the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you're able to switch the PHP version which is active for your account from the same section, you will have to activate the tool for any new version that you set. When you are more experienced, you will be able to employ 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're able to run both new and older script applications for multiple sites in the same account - a thing that you cannot do with numerous other web hosting suppliers on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all of the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer, so you won't experience any kind of problems in case you would like to set up and work with a script application that requires the software instrument in order to function properly. Enabling it is as simple as clicking a single button in the Advanced area of the Hepsia Control Panel which comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you are able to proceed with the application installation without any delays. As we use a revolutionary in-house made platform and we support many different versions of PHP simultaneously, you'll have to enable ionCube any time you switch to a version that you have not used before. You will also have the option to enable 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 a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of program code inside it.
