To stop the reverse engineering of script applications, many developers encrypt their code with instruments such as ionCube PHP Encoder and make it human unreadable. This is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unencrypted code without paying the required license fees. In case you purchase web software protected with ionCube PHP Encoder, you'll be able to use it without any problems as long as a software tool known as ionCube Loader is available on the web hosting server. This loader allows you to run encoded files and you will often find it as one of the prerequisites for a particular script application to be installed. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they are ordinarily executed faster and this will increase the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is available with all the shared web hosting packages which we supply, so if you need it in order to install and run some script app which requires it, you can enable it with a single click from the Advanced section of your Hepsia Control Panel. Because you are able to change the PHP release which is active for your account from the same section, you'll have to enable the tool for every new version that you set. If you are more experienced, you will be able to use 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're able to run both new and older script apps for multiple websites within the same account - something that you won't be able to do with a lot of other website hosting service providers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

Because all the semi-dedicated server accounts are created on our advanced cluster platform and ionCube Loader is available on it, you'll be able to use any script application which needs this tool so as to function efficiently. With just a few clicks in the Hepsia web hosting Control Panel you will be able to activate or deactivate ionCube for the PHP version that's currently active for the account. As we support several releases of PHP simultaneously, you'll need to do that any time you move to a different version, but when you revert back to a release that you've already used, our system will remember your preference and ionCube Loader will already be activated. In case you have multiple sites inside the same account and they need different releases of PHP, you're able to create a php.ini file in every single domain folder and with a couple of lines of program code you're able to define both the PHP version plus the status of ionCube regardless of what is selected for the hosting account altogether.
