In order to prevent the reverse engineering of script apps, many developers encode their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid apps in particular, because anyone would be able to use and change the unencrypted code without paying the needed license fees. If you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a software instrument named ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader enables you to execute encoded files and you will often see it among the prerequisites for a certain script app to be set up. Since the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're generally executed much faster and this can improve the overall speed of your site.

IonCube in Cloud Website Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all the cloud website hosting packages that we offer, so any time you require it to set up and run a script application which requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced area of your Hepsia Control Panel. Since you are able to switch the PHP release that's active for your account in the same section, you will need to activate the instrument for each new version that you set. If you are more skillful, you can use 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 are able to operate both new and older script applications for multiple sites inside the same account - something that you will not be able to do with numerous other hosting suppliers out there.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

IonCube Loader is provided with all the Linux semi-dedicated servers that we offer, and you will not experience any kind of problems in case you'd like to set up and work with some script app that requires the software instrument in order to function appropriately. Enabling it is as easy as clicking a button in the Advanced part of the Hepsia Control Panel that comes with all the semi-dedicated accounts and the change will take effect in a minute, so you are able to move forward with the app set up without any delays. Because we employ an avant-garde in-house built platform and we support several versions of PHP simultaneously, you will have to activate ionCube every time you move to a version that you haven't used before. Additionally, you have the option to enable ionCube loader and even to set a PHP release different from the one in the account as a whole by generating a php.ini file in a separate domain or subdomain folder and adding a couple of lines of code within it.
