In order to stop the reverse engineering of script applications, numerous developers encode their code with instruments like ionCube PHP Encoder to make it human unreadable. The aforementioned is valid for paid applications in particular, since anybody could possibly use and change the unprotected code without having to pay the needed license fees. In case you obtain web software encoded with ionCube PHP Encoder, you will be able to use it without any problems as long as a tool known as ionCube Loader is a part of the website hosting server. This loader makes it possible to execute encrypted files and you'll often see it among the prerequisites for a given script application to be set up. As the encrypted files are already precompiled, they're normally executed a lot quicker and this can enhance the general speed of your site.

IonCube in Shared Website Hosting

IonCube Loader comes with all of the shared website hosting plans which we provide, so every time you require it in order to set up and execute a script app that needs it, you can enable it with a single click in the Advanced section of the Hepsia Control Panel. Due to the fact that you're able to change the PHP version that's active for your account from the same section, you will need to enable the instrument for any new version which you set. In case you are more experienced, you'll 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 site only, without affecting the whole account. Thus you'll be able to manage both new and older script apps for multiple websites in the same account - something that you won't be able to do with various other web hosting suppliers available on the market.

IonCube in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you buy a semi-dedicated server package from our company, you'll be able to take advantage of any kind of script-driven application that requires ionCube Loader since the tool comes with all servers that are part of our innovative cloud website hosting platform. In addition, we support several versions of PHP, therefore if you move from PHP 4 to 5.2 or 5.3, for instance, you can activate ionCube for that particular release with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. Our platform will remember your choice, so if you move back to the previous version of PHP, the software instrument will already be active. For more tech-savvy users, we also offer the option to pick the PHP version and whether ionCube will be active or not for a particular domain name without altering the settings for the whole website hosting account. This is done by putting a php.ini file within a domain folder with a couple of lines of program code.
